From Penninsula, take I-64 East, towards Norfolk.  When you get to Newport News/Hampton, you can veer to the right on I-664, toward Monitor/Merrimac Tunnel and Suffolk/Chesapeake, and this will connect with I-64 at the Bowers Hill section (veer right & follow signs to Chesapeake).  This route has less traffic jams. —  Or, you can continue straight on I-64 at Newport News and cross the Hampton Roads Tunnel, toward Chesapeake and Suffolk. (SEE ATTACHED MAP.)

From either direction on I-64, take the SOUTH BATTLEFIELD BLVD. (Route 168), Exit 290-B.

Go 1-2 miles on SO. BATTLEFIELD (168), and you will see Chesapeake General Hospital on your right.   (You will pass a Wendy’s, Taco Bell, & Rite-Aid on your left just before you reach hospital.)

Turn right at the first light immediately after you pass the hospital.  This is MEDICAL PARKWAY.  (If you pass IHOP restaurant on left, you have gone too far.)

Take the first right, behind the hospital, on BUCKLEY WAY.  You will see small green signs, with white letters, pointing to Chesapeake Health Dept.

Go past the Emergency entrance to the Hospital, all the way to the end of this street (approx. 200 yards).  The Health Dept. is the last building on left, and you will be on the back side of the building.  The street veers to the left—you can follow it around to the front of the building.

We are open 8:15 am to 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday.
