    Garde​n Committee

    The mission of the WMHC Therapeutic Garden Group is to create spaces where patients, residents and visitors can rest, heal, and be inspired to improve their lives.

    More than 20 gardens are on the campus of the Western Maryland Hospital Center.  The gardens provide an alternative outdoor environment to the traditional hospital room for patients and residents to receive physical, spiritual, mental health and recreational therapies.  Elevated raised beds are used by patients and residents to create flower and vegetable gardens.  These gardens also serve as a respite area for staff to relax and enjoy the benefits of being with nature.
