Where Can I Park at Children's?

We're here to streamline your plan for parking at Children's. Whether you're visiting our Egleston, Hughes Spalding or Scottish Rite location, we've got you covered with information on parking options, rates and directions.

Egleston Hospital is located on the Emory University campus at 1405 Clifton Road in Atlanta.

The hospital has two parking decks, which are open 24 hours a day. The main parking deck is located off Uppergate Drive, and the Emergency Department parking deck is located off Clifton Road.

The Emergency Department parking deck is for emergency patients only and is not accessible to those visiting inpatients. Families and visitors who are in the Emergency Department can access the decks directly through the main Emergency Department entrance. Family members in the Emergency Department whose children are admitted for inpatient care must be escorted back to the Emergency Department parking deck.

Does Egleston offer valet parking?

There is no valet parking at Egleston, but valet parking is available next door at the Emory Children’s Center Building on Uppergate Drive. Oversized vehicles should be valet parked at this location. The cost is $5 for Children’s visitors and $8 for non-Children’s parking. There is also valet parking for $8 at the Emory Winship Cancer Institute across the street from Egleston.

What if the Egleston parking decks are full?

If the Egleston parking decks are full, visitors can valet park at the Emory Children’s Center Building and the Emory Winship Cancer Institute (see above). Emory University parking also is an option two streets over from the hospital, off Lowergate Drive (maximum parking fee is $8).

There are two sets of parking rates at Egleston Hospital:

Children’s rates—for families and guests visiting Egleston or the Emory Children’s Center Building
Non-Children’s rates—for anyone not visiting either of those facilities

Children’s rates
  • 0-30 minutes = Free
  • 61-90 minutes = $2
  • 91 minutes-2 hours = $3
  • 2 hours-24 hours = $5
  • 5 Exit Pass* = $5

Non-Children’s rates
  • 0-30 minutes = Free
  • 31-60 minutes = $5
  • 61-90 minutes = $10
  • 91 minutes-2 hours = $15
  • 2 hours-24 hours = $20
  • 5 Exit Pass* = N/A
*A 5 Exit Pass allows you to exit five times for $5. It can be purchased with the appropriate validation from the front desk in the main lobby. Families will receive a receipt upon exiting, which they can use each time they enter and exit, up to five times. The pass expires after one year.

Cashiers are present at the main parking deck Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. At the Emergency Department deck, cashiers are available Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. An automated system serves the parking decks at all times.

Hughes Spalding Hospital is located in downtown Atlanta at 35 Jesse Hill Jr. Drive SE.

Parking at Hughes Spalding is valet only. We don’t recommend parking on the street at meters. Valet parking is available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Valet service at Hughes Spalding is free for all patients and $7 for guests and visitors. Turn into the hospital entrance from Coca-Cola Place, and valet will assist you.

Overnight, from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m., self-parking is available in the same lot. Self-parking rates are:
  • 0-4 hours = $5
  • 4 hours or more = $10

Scottish Rite Hospital is located at 1001 Johnson Ferry Road NE in Atlanta, near Northside Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital and Sandy Springs and close to the I-285 perimeter.

The hospital has a main parking deck and an additional parking deck for the Medical Office Building at Scottish Rite. You can access the hospital from both decks.

Valet service is available Monday to Friday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. for $7 at the Scottish Rite hospital main entrance. At the Emergency Department, free valet service is available 24 hours a day.

Free shuttle service is available upon request at the front desk in the main lobby from the main entrance to Meridian Mark Plaza, Day Rehabilitation and the MARTA bus station.

Does Scottish Rite have handicap parking?

There are handicap parking spaces on each floor of the main parking deck. Visitors are encouraged to use the handicap parking spaces on the third floor of the parking deck (the main level of the deck) because they are the closest to the elevator and allow easiest access to the lobby.

Where can I park an oversize vehicle?

Vehicles exceeding 6 feet 8 inches must park in a space designated for oversize vehicles. Most minivans and SUVs will fit in the parking deck. There are overhead signs at the deck entrance that will measure whether your vehicle will fit.

For oversize vehicle parking use:
  • Valet parking service
  • The oversize parking lot, just to the left of the parking deck
