Sowing the seeds for a deeper understanding of the power of nature as a healing space for individuals and communities
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.
