How do I get the street addresses of the different patient care facilities?
A list of patient care locations in the Texas Medical Center is here, and the addresses of all of our locations are here. Details on where to park and how to navigate the Texas Medical Center are available, too.
You can also use the Access wayfinding system, which offers several methods to get you where you need to go. You can find directions using either an address or a landmark, or locate buildings either by name (e.g. Mays Clinic) or by entering your appointment information.
Where should I park?
We offer several convenient areas for parking. You can view more by visiting our Parking at Texas Medical Center page.

How do I call a hospital patient?
If the patient has a phone in his or her room and you know the number, you may call it directly. If you don’t know the phone (or the room) number, you may call the main switchboard at 713-792-2121 or 800-889-2094 (toll-free) for assistance.
How do I send flowers to someone staying at the hospital?
It’s easy to deliver a healthy dose of good cheer to your friends or relatives while they are with us.
Step 1: Find out your friend or relative’s room number. If you don’t know it, just call the main switchboard at 713-792-2121 or 800-889-2094 (toll-free) for assistance.
Step 2: Check with the floor’s charge nurse for restrictions. Some patients may not be able to keep fresh flowers or live plants in their rooms, due to the risk of infection. If plants or flowers are forbidden, consider sending a balloon bouquet, an arrangement of silk flowers, or a basket of snacks instead.
Step 3: Place your order. You can do this either through your favorite florist or at the MD Anderson gift shop. Whichever florist you choose, please make sure to communicate any restrictions before ordering.
When am I allowed to visit a patient?
Primary visiting hours are from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., but MD Anderson patients may have visitors at any time. Adult patients and parents or guardians of patients have the right to determine who may or may not visit, and certain areas of MD Anderson are off limits to children.
Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian, and all children must be screened for disease and cleared for admittance before they can visit patients (you will need to bring a copy of the child’s vaccination records).
