Medical staff at Canyon Vista Medical Center (CVMC) opened their healing garden on May 14 to bring tranquility to patients, families and visitors.

“We wanted to do something to express our gratitude to our staff, our patients and our families, and the healing garden seemed to be the perfect solution,” said Dr. Jody Jenkins, a General Surgery physician at Canyon Vista Medical Center.

The garden is located between Medical Office Building One and the main hospital building, and has three different sections: a ramada, kitchen garden and a secret garden.

“Jan Groth, the master gardener, picked out every plant,” said Jenkins. “Now we have an area that hopefully patients and staff can go to relax.”
