Visit PrepaRtion

At James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital at Vidant Medical Center, your child is our priority. We are focused on making sure that you and your family are prepared for your child’s upcoming visit. Our goal is to make your experience at our hospital as comforting and positive as it can be. From the beginning, you and your family will be involved in your child’s plan of care. You are a part of our medical team, and we will make it easy to communicate with us.

Maynard Children’s Hospital is located at 2100 Stantonsburg Road, Greenville. You may park in the visitor parking lot, which is located in front of the hospital. One free 24-hour parking pass is given to each family. We offer free valet parking for patients’ families. The valet parking attendant is located at the Children’s and Women’s entrance. We also offer free shuttle service daily if you wish to park your car on the hospital campus and ride the shuttle to and from the building. To schedule shuttle rides, please contact the shuttle staff at 252-847-1547.

Use the Maynard Children’s Hospital & Women’s Center lobby entrance. The receptionist will direct you to the registration area.

If your child is arriving for same-day surgery, you and your child will be escorted to the Ambulatory Surgery Unit (ASU). A nurse will review your child’s chart and get him or her ready for surgery. A child life specialist, often referred to as a CLS, will help your child’s hospitalization experience be as understandable and close to his or her normal life as possible. The CLS will meet with you before surgery and provide emotional and social support in order to ease the stress and anxieties that may accompany a hospital stay.


Family members and friends are a major support system for you and your child. You decide who your family members and support person(s) are and how you would like them to be involved in your child’s care. Visiting children should always be accompanied by and supervised by an adult other than the patient. Family members and visitors should:

  • Wash their hands or use hand sanitizer each time when entering and leaving the patient’s room.
  • Stay home if sick, not feeling well or have signs of an infection or respiratory illness.
  • Follow all isolation precautions as instructed by your nurse.
