Your Child's Clinic Visit

Day of Appointment

Give Yourself Enough Time

Allow 15–20 minutes for parking, badging and check-in. If you are late, we may need to reschedule.

Bring Siblings to Playroom

The length and nature of your visit may make it difficult for young children to attend. If children attend, we recommend bringing another adult to supervise.

We have free playrooms for patients and their brothers and sisters ages 3 to 11 who are toilet-trained (no Pull-Ups) at our hospital campus, Bellevue, North Clinic in Everett, and South Clinic in Federal Way locations.

About two weeks before your child's clinic visit, we will send you an appointment reminder notice. It lists the date, time and location of your child's visit.
