We encourage patients and visitors to use our valet parking service. It’s convenient and usually less expensive than self-parking.

 Patient and Visitor Parking

Parking Options & Information

Located on Drexel Boulevard between 57th and 58th streets, our short-term parking lot is situated between the Comer Children’s Emergency Department and the Center for Care and Discovery. This lot is open 24 hours a day.

Only women in labor and patients being seen in the Comer Children’s Emergency Department are allowed up to four hours of free parking with validation. Parking tickets can be validated at the Comer Children’s Emergency Department main desk and at the Family Birth Center located on the third floor of Comer Children’s. Non-validated tickets or those found to be in violation of the rules are subject to a fine, as indicated by signage in the lot.

Valet parking is available in front of the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital main entrance and the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine (DCAM). Please ask clinic staff about discounted parking rates for patients and visitors.
