Healing Garden at Smilow Cancer Hospital

On the seventh floor of Smilow Cancer Hospital is an outdoor healing garden for patients and family members to enjoy, complete with trees, shrubs, plants, a small stream and benches.

Healing Garden

The Healing Garden at Smilow Cancer Hospital is part of our commitment to patient- and family-centered care; and a recognition of nature's healing qualities.

The sights and sounds of our garden can reduce anxiety and stress and have a restorative effect on the physical and mental health of our patients. Spring, summer and fall are wonderful times to visit the garden. And in the winter, the stone floor is heated to melt the snow, so those who are able to brave the cold air can still enjoy the scenery.
