For help finding housing for your stay, contact Guest Services.
Arranging Your Stay
Arrange for housing as soon as you find out that you're coming to Seattle Children’s. Some accommodations and financial assistance can take several weeks to arrange.
Consider options you may have like:
- Staying with friends and family in the area.
- Asking churches and community groups in your home community about housing options in Seattle.
- Finding a way to leave your child's brothers and sisters at home. This may allow lower-cost housing options.
Most patient rooms have a sleeper chair or couch where one, maybe two, parents or guardians can sleep at night. Staying bedside depends on the patient's condition, available space and safety. Ask your nurse about the rules for your child’s unit. Siblings and visitors may not stay overnight. See the visiting section to learn more
