For $600, you'll likely need a roommate. Fishtown and Northern Liberties are rapidly gentrifying neighborhoods that would be within general walking distance or a short bus ride to your job. Much of Center City as well as South Philly is open to you as long as you can get to the Broad Street Orange Line subway. From there, you can get off at the Girard stop and either walk or bus the nine blocks east to the hospital.
