Construction and Parking Update

Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt is growing to serve more kids and their families. We're adding four floors and 160,000 square feet of hospital space.

Our construction company recently topped off this ongoing project with the final beam of the expansion. But this project will continue for some time. Improvements also include adding elevators to the hospital towers, which will help visitors reach patient floors more quickly and easily.

Until this work is complete, we are making changes to the way you enter and exit Children's Hospital.

Please note the following temporary changes.

  • A new temporary entrance on the first floor for visitors to Doctors' Office Tower is now open.
  • The main front entrance from Children's Way is now closed and will remain closed until sometime between December 2018 and February 2019. However, patients may still be dropped off at the front entrance to access temporary entrances.
  • Doctors' Office Tower visitors may still access the clinics from the South Garage entrance on the second floor and from the Yellow Entrance (see map below) on the first floor.
  • Diagnostic Imaging, Radiology, Surgery, and Main Hospital Elevator access is available through the Green Entrance.
  • After-hours hospital visitor access will remain available through the Emergency Department entrance.
  • Our free valet parking service is now available at the South Garage entrance.

We thank visitors to Children's Hospital for your patience and understanding during this important time of growth.
