Getting to the Clinical Research Center
Those coming to the Clinical Research Center for study visits should use 500 HMC Crescent Road, Hershey, Pa., 17033, as the GPS address to get to campus. Once on campus, however, most participants will follow signs for the Centerview Parking Garage rather than proceeding to the HMC Crescent Road address. (This is Location 7 on the campus map.)
Parking in the garage is free, and a shuttle bus regularly stops outside the garage on the side nearest to the hospital.
Taking this shuttle to the North Entrance will be best for most participants traveling to the Clinical Research Center.
Those being dropped off can proceed to the 500 HMC Crescent Road location, which is the North Entrance door. (This is Location 13 on the campus map.)
Once inside the North Entrance, study participants can walk straight ahead to the North elevators and take them to the fourth floor.
The Clinical Research Center reception desk and waiting area are just off the elevators. Participants should check in with the receptionist at the desk.
Getting to the Center for NMR Research
The Center for NMR Research is in the NMR building, a separate building behind the main hospital. (This is Location 10 on the campus map.)
Those coming to the Center for NMR Research for study visits should use 30 Long Lane, Hershey, Pa., 17033, as the GPS address to get to campus.
Once on Long Lane, drivers can bear left into the NMR Research Parking Lot next to a beige one-story building.
The first two slots are designed as patient parking. Study participants should use the entrance on right side of building, which opens into the waiting room.
