Good Samaritan Hospital

Let's take a look at a few landmarks that we can see from the vantage point of our office 23 floors above central Phoenix.

This is Good Samaritan Hospital, where my brother and I were born. When my husband was hospitalized here for about 4 days for some cardiac testing (he is fine) my brother visited him and said he felt like a salmon returning to his birthplace.

For mid-century architecture, I think this design has help up well. The hospital is rather unusual inside, as there are not many straight corridors, as the rooms are arranged in circular pods. By the time a patient's family figures their way around, hopefully it is time to check out of the hospital.

This week we are showing photos of the Villa Balbianello at Lake Como, Italy on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I can't think of a better name for a hospital--REALLY!

I so love the fact that you are indigenous to AZ and can brief us all on the main attractions and highlights.

This is a great angle to give a perspective of this unusual hospital campus.

I like this view of the hospital and you are so right about the inside. It can be very confusing.
