Parking Information for the Pediatric Emergency Department

Outpatient Parking

When visiting the Pediatric Emergency Department, you can park at the Jonathan Lucas Street Garage (6'8" clearance) which has an entrance at the corner of President Street and Doughty Street. Self-parking for outpatients is $.75 per half hour, up to a maximum of $3. If parking exceeds two hours, all charges over $3 will be paid by the hospital; but to receive this courtesy the ticket must be validated. Check with reception staff in the area where you receive your care.

Valet parking is available for a fee of $8 for patients and families/visitors of patients. The service is provided Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., as available. The Emergency Department valet stand is located at the entrance to the Children's Emergency Department, on 96 Jonathan Lucas Street

Mobility-Impaired Patients/Handicapped Parking

For wheelchair assistance, use a courtesy phone near an elevator or call 843-876-0101 (7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday) from your cell phone. South Carolina State law provides that there is no charge for parking in metered or timed facilities for vehicles which display a handicap plate or placard and which are driven by or transporting the handicapped individual. If the handicapped individual is not in the vehicle, the posted parking rate applies.

Inpatient Parking

Inpatients' families and visitors may park for $.75 per half hour. The maximum daily rate (up to 24 hours) is $6. To receive the reduced rate, the visitor should provide the patient's last name and room number to the cashier when exiting the parking facility. The cashier will issue a receipt. This will allow unlimited additional exits during the 24-hour period at no charge.
