Your Route to the Hospital
Before the big day, plan the route you will take to get to the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, as well as an alternate route. Practice the drive during heavy traffic and times with very little traffic. Maps and parking directions can be downloaded here.
- Parking Garage: We recommend that you park in the 12th Avenue Parking Garage. From the garage’s third floor level, you will have easy bridge access to Doan Hall, where you will take the elevator to the sixth floor.
- After Hours Arrival: If arriving between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., please go to the Emergency Department. One of our staff will help you get to the Maternity Center. You may also use the intercom at any hospital entrance after-hours when entrances are locked.
- Delivering on an Ohio State Football Game Day: If traveling to the Emergency Department or Labor and Delivery during an Ohio State football home game, please contact Ohio State’s Police Department at 614-292-2121 and notify them of your pending arrival. You will be asked to provide your travel route, vehicle description and/or license plate number with an estimated time of arrival so as to alert traffic officers so they can help you through game day traffic.
