Construction Advisory

New entrances and routes to the hospital – ongoing

Construction of the Boston Children’s pedestrian bridge between the Patient and Family Garage (across from the hospital’s main entrance on the corner of Longwood Avenue and Blackfan Street) and our Main Building is underway. As a result, patients and families will be directed to the hospital using different entrances and routes. Clearly marked signs will help you reach your destination and staff will be available to assist. Please see the following directions and maps.  

As many of our patients and families arrive in the Patient and Family Garage, the routes to the hospital begin at this location. Please note the existing entrance to Boston Children’s Primary Care Center and the revolving door alongside the Hunnewell building will be closed through summer 2019, which is creating the need for these new entrances and routes.

The pedestrian bridge will greatly improve the Boston Children’s experience for patients and families by providing safer and more direct access to the hospital. We apologize for the inconvenience; however, we are confident the long-term safety benefits of the bridge far outweigh the short-term disruptions caused by construction.

Please plan accordingly for delays and give yourself an additional 5-15 minutes to get to your destination.
