The former Graduate Hospital building located in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia has been transformed into a unique and contemporary health care facility. It is Center City, Philadelphia's first inpatient hospice unit exclusively created for acute hospice care.

"The patient- and family-focused spaces provide a comforting environment that illustrates the importance of good design in a healthcare setting," applauds the IIDA.
