CHKD offers limited valet parking for patient families


NORFOLK, VA – Due to the temporary loss of parking spaces on Children’s Lane during renovation of the CHKD lobby, the hospital will offer limited valet service for patient families. The service is free of charge and available Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Vehicles displaying valid DMV-issued disabled parking permits (hang tags, license plates, etc.) will be eligible for the valet service as will oversized vehicles that cannot fit into the visitor parking garage. Additional parking spaces will be designated for vehicles with disabled parking permits in the visitor parking garage located on Wagner Road between Fairfax Avenue and Olney Road.


The construction project is part of plan designed to improve patient drop off, pedestrian traffic and visitor flow and includes major enhancements to CHKD’s front lobby. The main entrance to the hospital will remain open through the duration of the project.
