Construction Advisory

Main Hospital Entrance Closed to Vehicles, July 12

On Sunday, July 12, from 4:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. the main front entrance of the hospital will be closed to vehicular traffic. The reason for the closure to vehicles is to safely accommodate a crane and related work for the delivery of two new MRIs in the Berthiaume Building (aka Main Building).

Pedestrian access will remain the same along the sidewalk leading up the main driveway at the front entrance of the hospital and the Fazzalari Sky Bridge will remain open.

For patients and families with mobility issues who are entering and exiting the hospital, and for handicap vehicles, access will be on Children’s Way at the hospital shuttle drop off and pickup location. A COVID-19 check-in station for patients and families will be located at the entrance.

For urgent patient arrivals, emergency vehicles and anyone requiring emergency care will access the Emergency Department through the ambulance entrance on Binney Street.

Clearly marked signs will be displayed and Boston Children’s staff will be available to assist.

Please plan accordingly for this disruption to our normal access to the hospital and give yourself a few extra minutes to get to your destination.

Thank you for your patience during this construction event.
