Bryn Mawr Hospital Health Center Healing Garden Newtown Square, Delaware County, PA

A Sanctuary for Healing and Tranquility
The Cancer Center Healing Garden at the Bryn Mawr Hospital Health Center is a testament to the power of collaboration and dedication. Through the tireless efforts of a passionate group of volunteers, generous donors, and a committed staff, this remarkable outdoor space has become a reality, providing a serene and nurturing environment for patients, families, and healthcare professionals.

Designing a Calming Oasis
Our firm was entrusted with the task of creating a healing garden that would serve as a calming oasis amidst the challenges of cancer treatment. We carefully designed the space to include intimate seating areas, strategically placed to provide a sense of privacy and tranquility. These quiet nooks offer patients and their loved ones a peaceful refuge to rest, reflect, and find solace during difficult times.

Engaging the Senses Through Plantings
To create a truly immersive and therapeutic experience, our team selected a diverse array of plantings that engage the senses and provide year-round interest. The garden features a carefully curated collection of flora that offers a kaleidoscope of colors, delightful scents, and visual interest throughout the seasons. From vibrant blooms in the spring and summer to the rich hues of autumn foliage, the healing garden is a constantly evolving tapestry of nature’s beauty.

Water Features for Relaxation and Rejuvenation
Central to the healing garden’s design are the water garden and waterfall, which serve as focal points for relaxation and rejuvenation. The gentle sound of cascading water creates a soothing ambiance, helping to reduce stress and promote a sense of calm. The water features not only provide visual interest but also contribute to the overall tranquility of the space, inviting visitors to pause, breathe, and find moments of peace.

Seamless Integration with the Indoor Environment
Recognizing the importance of creating a seasonally cohesive experience, our firm carefully designed the healing garden to ensure that the views from within the building are equally as enchanting as the outdoor experience. Large windows and strategically placed seating areas allow patients and staff to enjoy the beauty of the garden from the comfort of the indoors. This integration of indoor and outdoor spaces promotes a sense of connectivity and ensures that the therapeutic benefits of the healing garden can be experienced by all, regardless of their ability to venture outside.

The Cancer Center Healing Garden at the Bryn Mawr Hospital Health Center is an example of our firm’s commitment to creating spaces that promote healing, well-being, and resilience. By combining thoughtful design, sensory-engaging plantings, and soothing water features, we have created a sanctuary that offers comfort, hope, and renewal to those facing the challenges of cancer treatment.
