Information for Visitors at Hasbro Children's Hospital
Visiting a Patient
Hasbro Children's Hospital has temporary measures in place to minimize traffic and potential exposure in our hospitals, protecting patients and staff.
Mail, Flowers and Gifts
Cards and letters will arrive sooner if addressed as follows:
Child's full name and floor number
c/o Rhode Island Hospital,
Hasbro Children's Hospital
593 Eddy Street
Providence, RI 02903
Flowers and other gifts are welcome, but rubber latex or plastic balloons may not be given to children because they present a choking hazard and may cause allergic reactions. Mylar balloons are allowed.
Please be sure that your child's full name and floor location are given to the delivery service. If your child is in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, flowers are not allowed.
Lori's Gifts, a full-service gift shop, is located on the first floor of the Hasbro Children’s Hospital lobby opposite the traffic circle. It is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 12 to 4 p.m.
