Finding Your Way

A hospital can be a confusing place. Our new navigation system in the main hospital makes it easy, fun and educational to find your way around. Using a nature-based theme to guide visitors, each floor is dedicated to a unique region of the California ecosystem.

Parking and Garages

Attendant-Assisted (Valet) Parking
Valet parking is available at both the Main garage and the West garage at no additional charge. Valet hours are 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Vehicle retrieval is available 24 hours, however if you arrive outside of valet parking hours, you will need to self-park. Attendant-Assisted (valet) parking services will be able to identify which parking garage a visitor is parked in and be able to retrieve their car from either West or Main building.

Parking Passes
Patients who are admitted to the hospital are provided one validated parking pass at the time of admission. The pass is valid for seven or 30 days, as needed, and includes in-and-out privileges. The parking pass may be extended if needed by contacting our Admitting Department. Additional seven-day passes are available at reduced rates.

Main Building Garage
The Main building garage is for our families and visitors, with spaces dedicated for electric vehicles. Visitors can drop off their car at the valet podium at the main entrance, and pick up their car at the Departure Lounge. The Departure Lounge is open Monday-Friday 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and will also be a designated pickup spot for Care-A-Van and Ronald McDonald House shuttle.

West Building Garage
The West building garage is for our families and visitors, but no electric vehicle charging stations. You are also welcome to use the free valet parking service and let the attendant park for you. Visitors may leave their car with the valet attendants located at the top of the driveway at the main entrance to the West building, and retrieve their car from the attendants in the same location.
