Tuesday morning bay medical introduced plans for a healing garden as an overall hospital expansion. The healing garden will be located in a 10,000 square foot courtyard between the new building and the current Bay Medical Hospital.
The garden will give patients, family members, and staff a chance to go to the garden and help relieve stress. It will include water features, tropical landscaping, walking paths, and areas to sit "This garden with the running water and fresh air and sunshine things that are clinically proven to help reduce stress that will certainty help the patients.”
Bay Medical has also given the community a chance to be part of the garden through purchasing $250 engraved brick pavers and flagstones to honor or in memory of loved ones.
