Directions to RMH Health Campus/Pertinent Locations:
Directions from the North and South via I-81: Take Exit 245 (Port Republic Road). At the end of the ramp, go east (from the North turn left or from the South turn right) on Port Republic Road. Travel approximately 2 miles and turn left onto Stone Spring Road.
At the next stoplight, turn right on Reservoir Street into the hospital campus. Turn left on Health Campus Drive and follow the parking lot signs around to Lot D—just past the Emergency Department.
Directions from the East: Via US-33: Continue straight on US-33. Turn left onto Chestnut Ridge Drive at the stoplight beside Joe Bowman Chevrolet. At the end of this road, turn left onto Reservoir Street. Stay on Reservoir Street through the stoplight and turn left onto Health Campus Drive. Follow this road around past the Emergency Department entrance and turn right into Parking Lot D.
At RMH, park in Lot D—to the upper side if possible (that is, the right side as you look at the back of the building; you won’t have to walk as far to get in). You will enter the building at the door facing the lot—there will be a sign to show you which entrance. There is handicap and fuel-efficient vehicle parking.
Please dress business casual/comfortable. Since room temperature is always an issue, be sure to have a sweater or jacket. Kathe Scripture’s sessions will involve movement, and there is an opportunity for a stroll around the campus (there is an approximately 1-mile paved walking trail around the hospital). You may want to bring/wear walking shoes.
Note: All venues are within about a 2-mile radius of the Jameson Inn.
