If you are leaving the hospital during your child’s stay, these resources may help you find what you need without having to stray far from the hospital. As always, please ask a member of your Hemby team or guest services should you have specific questions or need additional directions.
The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) has a free trolley line, the Gold Rush, that runs on weekdays from Presbyterian Hospital. It operates every 15 minutes from 6:41 a.m. to 6:11 p.m., Monday through Friday. Check the Gold Rush schedule.
While your child is at Hemby, you may want to leave the hospital for a meal and eat in one of the many nearby restaurants. Within just a short distance from the hospital, there are many fast food options, delis, pizza shops and sit-down restaurants. The Hemby front desk can provide you with additional restaurant information.
If you need a breath of fresh air, Independence Park is a 24-acre park located right across from the hospital campus.
