Healing Garden blossoms as peaceful space

Castle Rock Adventist Hospital offers outdoor sanctuary for patients

Posted

Castle Rock Adventist Hospital in December debuted its new Healing Garden but didn’t celebrate the grand opening until June, when the garden reached full bloom and was breathing new life into a space between the campus’ Briscoe and Alexander buildings.

The garden features grassy lawns, ample bench and picnic seating, a children’s playground and freshly planted trees, shrubs and flowers. Sprinkled throughout the grounds are works of public art, such as fountains and sculptures.

Valerie Ross, the chief development officer of the Castle Rock Adventist Hospital Foundation, said upon the garden’s opening last year that the hospital would plant 60 trees as part of the project and keep the landscaping low-maintenance, and low in water consumption.

The garden is meant to provide patients, visitors and employees at the hospital with an outdoor sanctuary where they can escape the pressures of hospital life.
