Where to Donate

Directions to Donor Center

The Donor Center is located on the ground floor of RPCI's main hospital building. Donors should park in the ramp directly across from the hospital and bring their parking ticket in with them. Donors will receive validation for free parking once inside the Donor Center. Upon arrival to the hospital lobby, walk past the large waiting area, you will see a sign directing you to the Donor Center. We are located on the opposite side of the information desk. Please feel free to ask at the information desk for specific directions. They will be happy to assist you.
