Your Safety

Penn Medicine has protocols in place to maximize the safety of all who enter our hospitals and facilities. These safety policies include limiting the number of people accompanying patients to appointments or seeing them in the hospital. Please view our current visitor policy.

For your safety, here are additional tips for your visit:

  • If you are taking medication that makes you lightheaded or dizzy, please ask one of our Ambassadors in red coats to assist you.
  • Wear comfortable, form fitting shoes for your visit.
  • Do not skip meals unless you are instructed to fast.

For more information on what to expect during your visit and what we are doing to ensure your safety, watch this video:


Please arrive at the Perelman Center at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment. This will give you time to navigate to your appointment location.

If driving, please arrive to the area at least 30 minutes early so you have enough time to park and walk or take the shuttle to the Perelman Center. If you are more than 30 minutes late, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment. Once you complete your Coronavirus Screening text and obtain a Penn Open Pass, please have it available to show at the entrance to the parking garage to verify that you are a patient. We’re asking to make sure the most convenient parking spots are reserved for patients.

If at any point you get lost or need assistance, stop by our welcome desk in the lobby on the ground floor. Our Ambassadors dressed in red coats are also stationed throughout the Perelman Center and ready to help with wayfinding, wheelchair assistance and escorts, as needed. View the Perelman Center floor plan.
