Important Parking Updates


Rady Children’s Hospital is currently undergoing a campus development plan which includes construction of a new ICU and Emergency Services tower. This investment will help us continue to serve the community for generations to come. During this time, on-campus parking is being prioritized for patients to ensure minimal disruption to patient care. Patient family visitors should plan ahead and allow more time to navigate campus during construction.
