PLAN AHEAD! It may take you longer to get to SickKids during the Pan Am Games
Toronto and other cities in the Golden Horseshoe will be hosting the Pan Am Games (July 10-26) and Parapan Am Games (Aug. 7-15) this summer. During the games, some roads will be busier than normal. In addition, temporary traffic measures, such as turning bans, will be in place near games venues. Because there are training facilities, event sites and a host hotel not too far from SickKids, these traffic measures may affect your drive to and from SickKids.
Detailed traffic plans are posted on the Pan Am Games official website. Some of the traffic measures begin in late-June, before the games officially begin, so make sure you check the site if you are coming to SickKids any time between late-June and late-August.
The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is a big place. It can also be a confusing place, especially if you are coming for the first time. This section tries to answer questions you may have about coming to the hospital. It also gives you information that will make your visit to the hospital easier. Please select from the options on the menu to the left.
If you cannot find the information you need in this site, please call the hospital operator at 416-813-1500. If you need help at any time while you are in the hospital, you can ask someone at the Information Desk on the Main Floor in the Atrium (the new part of the hospital) or you can ask any of our staff members.
Unless specified otherwise, SickKids treats children 18 years or younger.
