Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital Healing Garden

Scottsdale, Arizona

Gensler designed this new healing garden to evoke feelings of well-being, provide places for serenity and rejuvenation, and impart visitors with a sense of connectedness to the natural world. Made possible through community philanthropy, the garden offers shaded outdoor gathering spaces, paths interwoven with drought-tolerant plantings, hummingbird and butterfly gardens, and water features. In addition to being visible from many patient rooms, lobby walls and doors were replaced with floor-to-ceiling glass to create a clear connection to other areas of the hospital and to draw in patients and visitors.
