I agree, it actually depends where in Madison youre headed, since Madison is quite spread out. It can be anywhere from a 20 to 30 minute trip to 45 minutes, just depends on traffic and where your headed. The Madison Hospital is probably a 40 minute ride give or take and it sits on the far westerly side of Madison.
30 min (depending on where in Madison)
Leave Madison on I565 East to South Memorial Parkway. Go roughly 6 miles and turn left on Weatherly, watch for the Weatherly exit from the Parkway. Follow Weatherly to Bailey Cove and turn right. Follow Bailey Cove to Green Mountain Road and turn left. That will take you to the entrance. Watch for the signs
