St. Luke’s Hospital

The importance of nature in the healing process was a factor in the design of outdoor spaces on the campus of this community hospital and medical office building. A winding decomposed granite trail with pedestrian bridges encircles the lake on the wooded site. The upper dining terrace with seat walls steps down to the lake. At the lake’s edge a vine-covered arbor provides a second outdoor area. Treatment rooms look out on a small garden area. This project also included the Aulenbacher Memorial Rose Garden generously donated by Merle Aulenbacher in memory of his wife Carolyn Aulenbacher and daughter Sheryl Aulenbacher-Osborne. It is a place for patients and visitors to peacefully reflect, the garden features benches, a fountain, a pavilion, rose beds, and lovely angel topiaries surrounding a plaque honoring Carolyn and Sheryl. We included native grasses and perennial panting.
