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

Enter the main driveway for the Medical Center from San Pablo Street. 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 and is considerably further away.

The concierge in the building lobby will give you directions to the conference room and issue you a visitor badge.

The hospital cafeteria is just a few steps from the conference room.
