Visiting Hours & Parking

700x310_Visiting_Hours.png

We recognize that family members, friends and loved ones play an integral role in providing physical, social and emotional support to patients. However due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we may need to update our visiting policy to ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff.

Currently, we are prioritizing visits with our patients who have been at Runnymede for 14 days or more.

Patients who are eligible for visits may have a scheduled one-hour visit per day from a single designated visitor (or designated alternative). Up to two visits will be permitted per patient per week, and visiting hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week.

Find out more by reading our information sheet for visitors.

If you have a family member at Runnymede and you are interested in scheduling an in-person visit, please call 416-762-7316 ext. 2281, or email visiting@runnymedehc.ca.

Our address is 625 Runnymede Road, Toronto, ON M6S 3A3. For a map and driving directions, click here.

Runnymede is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment. Please refrain from wearing perfumes, colognes and other scented personal care products while at the hospital.

We are also a smoke-free hospital. Smoking is not allowed in any part of the building and is discouraged on hospital property.

Parking

Runnymede’s top priority is putting patients and families first, and effective immediately we are enhancing this commitment by giving friends and families more choice when buying monthly parking passes, to make visiting our hospital as easy as possible.

Monthly passes continue to be available to families and visitors for $50 per month that permit unrestricted monthly visitor parking. A newly introduced option is our special evening & weekend pass for $40 per month that permits monthly visitor parking on weekdays from 4pm-7am, with unlimited weekend parking. Please note that only one parking pass is available for purchase by family or friends of each patient due to the limited availability of on-site parking.

The number of parking passes available to Runnymede’s visitors each month is outlined below:

  • Unrestricted monthly passes: limited to 30 issued per month
  • Restricted evening & weekend passes: limited to 25 issued per month

Both types of parking passes can be purchased on a month-by-month basis, or can be set up in advance for automatic monthly renewal. Visitors who choose to have their passes renewed automatically will be given priority access to the passes that are available. Please note prices are subject to change. To buy a parking pass or for more information, please visit our main reception and complete the paperwork or call 416-762-7316, ext. 0.

Patients may be reached by calling 416-762-7316 and dialing 0 for reception. The hospital receptionist will direct your call to the appropriate patient care unit.
