It is taking place in the Health and Wellness Center on the 2nd Floor in Rooms A and B.

To get the Health and Wellness Center turn into the hospital and turn right and follow the signs that direct you to the Health and Wellness Center.  The road is long and winds around the hospital and is in the very back of the hospital in a different building.  I drove it and it takes about a little less than two minutes to drive back to it.  Follow the signs-Health and Wellness Center.
