ChicagoRound: St. Joseph Hospital

St. Joseph Hospital sits at Diversey and Lake Shore Drive in the extreme southeast corner of the Boystown area. More importantly, it overlooks one of the free Gatorade stations set up by Fleet Feet every weekend morning along the lakefront running trail. I've been admiring the building's organic shapes and funky 1962 architecture for eight years, and I love the way the way its aqua accents and its gently undulating pediment reflect the waves of nearby Lake Michigan.

St. Joseph Hospital is modern building. It has great architecture. It looks modern. It is amazing. It was designed beautifully.

Is that even a hospital? It is very beautiful. I just wish that the service provided by the hospital is as good as the building. I think some people have known that some hospitals give disappointing service for the patients.
