Throughout the football season, all entrances to UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital and UI Hospitals & Clinics will be secured on home game weekends from 9 p.m. Friday until Sunday morning. The connector bridges on Levels 1 and 2 also will be secured.
Public access to UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital and UI Hospitals & Clinics will be at the main entrances only from 9 p.m. Friday through Sunday morning. Information Desk and Safety and Security staff will verify patient locations for all visitors and assist with wayfinding.
