Directions: Map to Main Building (provided by Mapquest®).

Enter the main driveway for the Medical Center. If you continue up the driveway and around the traffic circle, you'll see the hospital parking lot ahead of you, which is a flat $7.00, and the hosplital building will be on your right. There is some metered parking in the neighborhood, primarily on Norfolk street, which would probably cost you about $4.00.
