Southwest Center City, is frequently referred to as Graduate Hospital, after the medical facility on the northern edge of the neighborhood. This name has become merely historical in nature since the hospital closed in 2007. Despite this, it is still used and is sometimes shortened to G-Ho. This neighborhood in South Philadelphia borders Center City, Philadelphia as well as on the north by South Street, on the south by Washington Avenue, on the west by the Schuylkill River, and by Broad Street on the east. It is an area adjacent to the Fitler Square and Rittenhouse Square neighborhoods to the North and Point Breeze to the South. It is home to several community service organizations, many churches, a few retail establishments, and some light industry.
The neighborhood has many other nicknames as well including South of South, SoSo, Naval Square, or Schuylkill-Southwest.
In recent years the area has experienced growth and gentrification. Hundreds of single family homes and condominium units have been built or refurbished. As a result of the neighborhood's proximity to Center City and increasing desirability, a variety of new businesses catering to the increasingly gentrified population have opened.
