The Healing Garden at Baltimore Washington Medical Center’s Tate Cancer Center is a serene, peaceful and beautiful spot that hospital patients, visitors and employees can enjoy year-round. The 8,000-square-foot garden features brilliant flowers, several hillside gardens, a winding stream, benches and a rectangular reflecting pool. The garden also features hundreds of bricks, inscribed with names of friends and loved ones. Patients and their families can spend time in the garden while being treated at the center, enjoying the healing qualities of the prevalent water features within the space. The Infusion Therapy rooms overlook the healing garden through expansive windows, allowing patients indoors to still enjoy the restorative qualities of the garden.

    About Us

    We are a private nonprofit that supports, informs, and inspires the creation of publicly accessible urban green spaces. We believe that every city resident needs nearby green space to provide opportunities for mindfulness, respite, and renewal. The Foundation has issued its final grants to build five Open Spaces Sacred Places and research the impacts on a variety of users with the hope that the powerful connection between nature, spirit and human wellbeing will be scientifically proven.
