Amenities & Services for Parents and Visitors

Families Come First at Shriners Children’s Ohio

Along with exceptional care for your child, we'll take good care of you, too. Be sure to take advantage of our amenities and services.

Free Parking

We offer free parking for your child's appointments. Visit our Getting Here page to learn more.


Many Shriners temples (chapters) have a special unit of volunteer transporters called "Road Runners." They provide transportation for our patients and a family member to the hospital for treatment and return them home. This transportation is complimentary.

Airline travel may also be available to families who are required to travel a long distance.

For questions about assistance with transportation, call Care Management at 513-872-6229.

Hospital Cafe, Gift Shop, ATM and Pharmacy

Dayton Children's Hospital has a wonderful cafe with ample seating, a gift shop, an ATM, and a retail pharmacy on the first floor. Shriners Children's Ohio patients, families and visitors are invited to visit.

We’re always here for our patients, regardless of a family's ability to pay or insurance status.
