Follow that road until you pass a traffic light. At the next traffic light, turn to your left. Follow that road, pass through one traffic light, until you get to the stop street. Turn to your right and follow the directional signs. Once you see the next directional sign pointing to your left, turn there and the hospital will be on you right.
