IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATES – PLEASE READ: While much of life is paused, your health isn't. With every precaution for our visitors, Seattle Children's Emergency Department remains open and ready to care for patients during this COVID-19 outbreak. If you believe that you may have been exposed to COVID-19, or are concerned about your symptoms, first call your primary care provider or your county's public health office and follow their instructions. Only one parent or caregiver can accompany a patient to a visit to the Emergency Department at this time. When you arrive at the hospital, a member of our staff will perform a health check and ask you a set of questions before you may enter.


Patients and families may pull into the Emergency Department driveway and a free 24-hour valet service will park your car on the hospital campus.
