A 4 story, 60,000 sf Heath Care and Literacy Center which is a joint venture between The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the City of Philadelphia with the intent to provide health care to children and adults in South Philadelphia.

The space will also include new facilities for the South Philadelphia Branch Library and Disilvestro Rec Center.
