Parking Options at Lutheran

We have over 200 registered for this coming kick-off of Season 3 at the Kachmann Auditorium at Lutheran Hospital.  We have had some conversations with the leadership team at Lutheran about parking.  Here are some options:

Parking garage at Lutheran

This is the South Campus parking garage adjacent to Medical Office Building Two.  Note:  we have been asked to use the TOP LEVEL to allow patients coming in early to have the lower levels.

To find the Kachmann Auditorium, you can take the elevator or stairs to the 2nd level and walk into Lutheran via the enclosed sky bridge walk.  Then take the elevator or stairs to the lower level where the Kachmann is located.

There are other parking options we have as seen below.  Yes, they will require a bit more walking, but we want to be sure Lutheran’s patients have the closest spots.

There is a shuttle that runs from the far left lot to the main entrance.  The far right circle is the 3Rivers lot.  We can accommodate a few cars as the lobby does not open until 9 am.

The yellow STAR designates the Medical Office Building Two – the closest entrance to Lutheran’s Kachmann Auditorium.

We will have people in the lobby of the Medical Office Building Two to help navigate you if needed.

The Lutheran Hospital leadership team has been great to work with.  We want to be sure our presence there is a positive one for the patients that will be arriving for treatment.

If you can carpool with a coworker, please consider that!  

ONE LAST NOTE:  Remember, no coffee is allowed in the Kachmann Auditorium.  We will honor this.  Water bottles with caps are allowed.

 

An Endorsement

I came across this today. My son had to write a short paper a couple of years ago in school. I’ll take this endorsement any time!

If you want to know the heart and passion behind First Fridays, my son captured it in his paper…

Favorite leader

My favorite leader is my dad. He had the courage to influence others, by creating a business where he helps everyday citizens, become confident with what they do. The business is non-profitable (love this!) and meets once every month. He brings in some of Fort Wayne’s top leaders and lets them help others. He is fearless of meeting new people.

A few months ago he went down to Canada to speak at a university in front of hundreds of people. He has integrity, because he loves doing his job but, he also has the integrity to help others learn and grow as leaders.

He is amazing at communicating. He gets the message out to people, that no matter where they work, no matter if they don’t have a job, they can still be great leaders in their community. When they meet they talk about how to lead others to become leaders.

He and my uncle were having a get together, and they said they wanted to have the community grow as leaders. They have been extremely successful and are still working hard to get new leaders in the community. He has been very supportive of people when they feel they aren’t doing a good enough job at work. He ran the student counsel at Haverhill elementary, and talked to us about how we can be leaders at school. He would also be glad to come in and talk to our class about leadership sometime. (I gave you his card).

How to find the Kachmann Auditorium (video)

So how do you find the Kachmann Auditorium – our new location for Season 3?  Watch this:

If you enter the Lutheran Hospital complex from the main entrance off of Jefferson Blvd., turn left at the first 4-way stop.

Lutheran entrance

You will drive past the ENT office on your left and the South Campus parking garage will be on your right.  There is also an open-air parking lot adjacent to the Heart Center.  Please do not park close the Heart Center’s entrance.  Save that for patients!
