Plan Your Visit
We realize your presence during your child’s stay at the hospital is very reassuring, so we encourage one parent/guardian to stay at the bedside. We provide a single cot, bed linens and shower facilities for the parent staying.
For other family members who would like to stay close to the hospital during your child’s stay, your care coordinator can answer any questions you may have about housing in the area surrounding Shriners Hospitals for Children® — Cincinnati.
Family members staying at the hospital may use the laundry facilities located on the second floor in the Family Care Unit. Laundry detergent is available from our Family Services/Care Coordination office.
