Parking Instructions

Patients may be dropped off at either of IU Health North Hospital’s main entrances—Entrance C (south) and Entrance B (north)—or as directed on the pre-visit information from your doctor’s office. Both entrances are on the hospital’s first floor, take you directly into the atrium and offer covered drop-off locations.

Parking at IU Health North Hospital is free, with surface parking lots conveniently located near each entrance to help patients and visitors get to their destinations quickly. Once inside the hospital, our team at the Welcome Desk will be happy to help you and answer any questions.

Visitor Information

We understand that family and friends are important to the healing process. That’s why we have an open visitation policy, encouraging visitors to spend as much time in the room as you'd like, including overnight stays. 

If you need help limiting visitors, we are happy to provide assistance and support. Some hospital areas have limited access, and if applicable, these restrictions will be discussed with you when you arrive.

IU Health North Hospital's entry doors are locked from 9 pm until 6 am. During these hours, please push the intercom button (located at each entrance), and a security team member will unlock the door.
