Graduate Hospital

Graduate Hospital, also called Southwest Center City, is named for a medical institution that is no longer in operation. Located south of South Street and west of Broad Street, Graduate Hospital is a walkable neighborhood filled with restaurants, bars, cafe, shops, and more. The stretch of South Street east of Broad has long been considered a draw for visitors, but Graduate Hospital’s western half is on the serious come-up thanks to ambitious restaurateurs and shop owners.
