We meet in the basement of the Baptist Hospital in Little Rock. Above is a map showing the Baptist Medical Center (looking north, Kanis Road at the bottom and I-630 at the top).

Your best bet is to park in or near the parking deck (lower lefthand corner [A]) and enter the hospital at street level at the entrance immediately adjacent to the parking deck [B]. Take the stairs down to the basement and turn left. We meet next to the cafeteria.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION on meeting location. Please read and VIEW THE IMAGE BELOW!

Baptist is doing extensive remodeling in the basement. The door shown as B in the diagram above is closed. When you get there take a right turn and walk toward Kanis. After a very short distance take a left and you will see an entrance on the south side of the building where you can enter. Please don't go all the way around to the Baptist Hospital main entrance. It is not only out of your way but there is no good way through the hospital to get to the meeting. In essence you will be just walking around the corner and entering immediately there. The room will be in the Baptist Conference Center just straight ahead of where the south door entrance is.
