Whether you are a hospital visitor or part of the staff, the Healing Garden outside of Markey Cancer Center is ideal for contemplation and relaxation. It features soothing colors, spaces to be alone or with loved ones, shade, and an abundance of plant life. The soil is sterile and artificial, making this a safe place for those susceptible to infection or illness. It is available 24/7, 365 days a year.
