During Your Stay

Preparing for surgery can feel overwhelming or scary if you don’t know what to expect. You may have some unanswered questions and worries that make you feel this way. Knowing what to expect will help you feel less nervous and more in control.

The Center is located in the heart of Chevy Chase directly across the street from Saks Fifth Avenue on Wisconsin Avenue. Parking options include the garage under the building, a lot behind the Marriott Courtyard Hotel or street parking. The cost to park ranges from five to fifteen dollars.
