City of Hope National Medical Center Duarte Reviews
This is a hospital May 13, 2008
So most people visit hospitals because they are sick, visiting someone who is sick or has something to do with making sick people better.
City of Hope may be the only hospital you can visit because you want to hang out in a rose garden or relax in a lobby with a spectacular mountain view.
Their philosophy is embodied in the statement “There is no profit in curing the body, if in the process, we destroy the soul.” Essentially cancer can’t be beat through medicine alone. It takes a healthy mind which is nurtured through things like a pretty setting – they have certainly succeeded because this is the prettiest hospital I've ever seen.
On the campus grounds they have: a Japanese Garden, a rose garden, impressive water fountains, sculptures, a visitor’s center and a nice little Synagogue.
