Healing Garden

For a sick patient, the Healing Garden at Burgess Health Center is a temporary place of peace in the midst of dealing with illness and pain. Perhaps it will mean the difference between a bad day and a hopeful day.

The garden’s tranquil setting, offers a healing retreat for patients, their families and visitors, hospital staff and the public. It provides a chance to be around nature and to escape, if for only a little while, the stress and stimulation of a clinical environment.

Many unique opportunities for honoring the special people and occasions in our lives are offered in the garden. You can create a lasting memory by purchasing a bench, tree or other garden feature. Celebrate the special people and moments in your life with a personalized, engraved brick to be set in the Healing Garden. Print a donation form (.pdf) here.
