Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know



The Bear Institute has created MyBearGuide, an app that serves as a guide for your visit to the main hospital at Children’s National Hospital. The main campus is located at 111 Michigan Ave NW in Washington, D.C.

As the only health system designed for kids in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, Children’s National believes every child should be cared for by professionals who have devoted their career to children’s medicine. We are dedicated to providing the best pediatric care for our patients, families and community.

Key features of MyBearGuide:

  • Wayfinding: Step-by-step navigation for finding appointments and clinics on the main campus at Children’s National
  • Food and more: Food and amenity details 
  • Directions: Transportation directions to Children’s National, including the shuttle’s status from the Brookland-CUA Metro Station
  • Wait times: Current Emergency Department wait times at the main hospital and the Children’s National Emergency Department at United Medical Center

The app is available for download by searching for “MyBearGuide” in the Apple App Store or Google Play.
