Visiting Hours & Parking
We recognize that family members, friends and loved ones play an important part of a patient’s care experience. At Runnymede Healthcare Centre, we have no prescribed visiting hours and you are welcome to visit at any time our patient feels ready to see you.
Our address is 625 Runnymede Road, Toronto, ON M6S 3A3. For a map and driving directions, click here.
Our main doors are open Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. If you plan on visiting after hours we encourage you to please call ahead to make sure the patient and staff are aware of your plans to visit.
To enter the hospital after hours please call reception at 416-762-7316 ext. 0 and you will be escorted in.
Please note that after-hours visiting is limited to a maximum of two visitors per patient and in some cases, we may need to restrict visiting to protect the privacy and rights of other patients who are sharing a room. Also, in some cases, we may need to interrupt a visit if patient care is required or if patient/staff safety is at risk.
If you feel unwell, have an infection or flu-like symptoms, we ask you to not visit until you are feeling well again. Please also remember to wash your hands before, during and after your visit.
Often, visitors come bearing special treats for our patients to eat. As many of our patients experience feeding and/or swallowing difficulties, food brought in by visitors must be brought to the attention of a nurse on the patient floor.
Runnymede is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment. We ask that patients, visitors, staff, physicians, volunteers and students 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.
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.
