Norma Pfriem Healing Garden, Park Avenue Medical Center, YNHH
This cancer treatment center has been designed as a welcoming, green and sustainable campus for the easy use of cancer patients and staff. The new outpatient surgery and treatment center links existing radiation/oncology and medical office buildings, organized around a central healing garden.

The healing garden is a visual focus for the complex with a rich palette of plantings, while a waterfall and pool provide soothing respite in the sunken terrace. Unique among cancer treatment facilities, the garden was designed around the ability for patients to receive their infusion treatments in private outdoor garden spaces.
