Parking at the American Family Children's Hospital

Visitor Parking

Visitor parking at the American Family Children's Hospital is available at hourly and daily rates on levels E and P of the parking ramp.

Inpatient Parking

Parking passes will be issued by the Parking Office to inpatients' primary visitors while at the American Family Children's Hospital. These passes allow these visitors to park for free during their stay. The Parking Office is located on Level E and is open Monday-Friday from 7:15am-12:30am and Saturday and Sunday from 7:15am-11:30pm. Each parking pass is valid for one week. The Parking Office can issue renewal passes if your stay is longer.

All other patient visitors must pay for parking at a parking pay station or at the exit.

Outpatient Parking

Patients with outpatient appointments receive free parking while at the American Family Children's Hospital. Simply present your parking stub/time ticket to the staff at the Guest Depot or at Outpatient Registration for validation. After hours, please go to the Security Office for parking validation.

Valet Service for Same-Day Appointments

To better serve our patients and families, American Family Children's Hospital offers free valet parking as an option for patient families who are bringing a child in for a same-day clinic, radiology or day treatment appointment, or for a same-day surgery procedure. Due to limited parking space, valet service at American Family Children's Hospital is only available to guests who have a child in their vehicle with an appointment. Family members who do not have a child in their vehicle or who will be leaving a vehicle overnight are asked to self-park in the American Family Children's Hospital ramp.

Families opting to use valet parking should drop their vehicle off with a valet attendant stationed near the large, revolving door entrance. To reclaim the vehicle when leaving, families must stop at the Security Office to obtain their keys. Vehicles are self-retrieved on Level B.

RV Parking

RV parking is available in Lot 131. Please inquire with UW Hospital and Clinics Guest Services staff at (608) 263-0315.
