Check In Time
Check-in is from 5:45 to 6:00 p.m. For your convenience while waiting, there is comfortable seating in the Education Center lobby.
You may park up front & to the right of the Education Center, further down to the right in our short stay lot, or directly across the street from the Education Center in the Lebauer Healthcare lot or one of the adjoining lots on the opposite side of Elam Ave. That is closer than parking in the main hospital parking lot & walking up the sidewalk or through the hospital. For questions, please call 832-1581 in advance.
