Floating Hospital for Children

Floating Hospital for Children is located in downtown Boston, next to Chinatown and the Theater District and within walking distance of Boston Common, Downtown Crossing, and many hotels and restaurants.

The main entrance to Tufts Medical Center for patients and visitors is located at 800 Washington Street. This entrance has connections to all other inpatient and outpatient buildings.

Emergency services for adult as well as pediatric patients are located at the North Building, 830 Washington Street.

Valet parking

A Patient Valet Parking Service is available between the Medical Center's North and South Buildings, at 830-860 Washington Street. Call 617-636-8970 for hours of operation or additional information.

Garage parking

Parking is available in the Medical Center's garage at 274 Tremont Street, next to the Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre (formerly the Wang Center). All patients with an appointment will be accommodated. 

A better way to find an available parking space

Patients and visitors now have an easy way to find the first available parking space in our Tremont Street Garage. Digital signs show the number of open spaces and their locations, including spaces for those with disabilities. . We’re the first hospital in Boston to use this innovative system.

A green light over each open space gives drivers an additional cue to quickly find an open space. The green light changes to red once the car pulls into the space. Spaces reserved for those with handicapped stickers have a blue light instead of a green light.

Feedback from patients and visitors indicates they are very pleased with how fast they can find a space.
