This is located just inside the main doors of PICU. All parents, guardians and visitors must stop here and dial into the unit, before proceeding to your child or teenager's room.
The lounge has couches, a phone and a computer with internet access. We ask that the number of visitors in the family room be kept small so all families have room to wait. We do have many places within the hospital where larger groups can gather together.
Jarret Stoll Comfort Zone - 3rd Floor
Located outside the unit's doors next to the elevators, this area allows families and friends to gather in large groups away from the unit. It overlooks the main floor mall of Royal University Hospital and provide a space to gather without being disruptive to the unit and allowing parents and caregivers to stay close by.
Atrium - 5th Floor
Take the public elevators up to 5th floor, and you will find a lush atrium filled with plants and natural light to provide a quiet retreat away from the unit. This area also has a small cafe - Café on 5th - that serves a lighter meal.
