Wheelchair Assistance and Patient Escorts

Wheelchairs are available for patient use at these entrances, convenient for curbside assistance:

  • the Main Entrance
  • the Pomerantz Family Pavilion entrance

Attendants at those entrances can help patients out of their cars and into a wheelchair.

Arrangements for patient escorts and wheelchair assistance also can be made at our information desks located in the following areas:

  • Main Entrance Lobby, Level 1
  • Stead Family Children's Hospital, Level 1
  • Pomerantz Family Pavilion Entrance, Level 1

You can reach the information desks at: 1-319-356-2456 or by dialing 101 from a hospital or HELP phone.

The PATmobile serves patients and visitors who may not need a wheelchair escort, but would benefit from motorized transportation within University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.
