Description: Located adjacent to the new, space age iteration, the original 1930s hospital is now a parking lot. Residents used to consider Good Sam a bad neighbor for the encroaching hospital expansion. Today, Coronado is oft cited as a “real” neighborhood because has suburban charm with urban amenities; services, transportation (lightrail & freeway access), and employment (a healthcare hub).
