Patients at Phoenix's John C. Lincoln Hospital will be greeted by a new entrance after its unveiling on Thursday.
The $5 million renovation was intended to create a soothing environment for patients.
"The hospital is dear to our family's hearts, and it is important that the lobby reflect the quality of care received inside the hospital," said David Lincoln, relative of the hospital's namesake, in the release.
The renovation was funded by Lincoln's family along with several other contributions, none of which were public funds.
The new lobby, which began construction in January 2012, includes a lobby, gift shop, spiritual center and bistro. A few more renovations will add more dining space.
