New York Times Healing Garden

It is so nice to see an article in the well known New York Times about therapeutic healing gardens in hospitals. The architect designed her spaces with so much thought for the users emotional and physical health (for example adding a slight incline for patients doing PT or wheelchair bound patients..). A family member of mine was in the hospital recently and related how much he did not like being there; it is a very stressful environment for patients, families and workers. A special place like the sky garden at the Children's hospital where a person can have privacy and sit under the night sky surrounded by plants does contribute to healing and ultimately better patient outcomes. Patient satisfaction is always a priority at hospitals or any business and I think that once some hospitals have incorporated healing gardens and therapeutic landscaping, others will soon have to follow or potentially lose a certain amount of business.
