LEGGETT AUDITORIUM

The Leggett Auditorium is noted on the second attached picture of the hospital by the yellow star at the back of the the ground floor of the hospital. You may park and access the Leggett Auditorium from the rear side of the main hospital building. You will drive to the parking areas by entering the main entrance of the Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital from Wilborn Avenue (Route 501). Turn left at the hospital front entrance and drive around the building to the back portion of the Emergency Room Parking area (designated as Lot # 5) for the closest parking to Leggett.
 
Please notice the 2 white "Airgas Tanks" in the attached photo at the backside of Lot # 5 - Emergency Room Parking. These tanks are where you access the entrance to the Leggett Auditorium as shown in the third picture (black glass doors at the bottom left of the walking ramp). As the back of Emergency Room Parking Lot # 5 fills, you may follow Oak Lane back to the Employee Parking Lot # 7 for additional parking.  We will have a couple of association members standing by outside by the parking area to assist with directions for the first couple of meetings.
