The Birmingham Young Persons Unit, which cares for teenage cancer patients, has undergone a modern makeover. If you were to ever visit this wing of the Birmingham hospital, you probably won't even recognize it for what it actually is. Instead, you will find yourself looking for the front desk in order to book a room for yourself.

Designed by Two Create, the Birmingham Young Persons Unit looks more like a boutique hotel than a hospital. Considering that these young cancer patients often spend months at a time in these facilities, it is only natural that they should look like an inn of sorts. Hip and colorful, the spaces are more inviting and possibly even therapeutic. Stats for Boutique Hotel Hospitals Trending: Older & Average
