Hadassah Australia Teams Up with Jewish National Fund to Establish Healing Garden at Hadassah Hospital-Mount Scopus
31-Aug-2011

With a $500,000 keystone contribution from the Jack and Robert Smorgon Families Foundation, Hadassah Australia has partnered with the Jewish National Fund of Australia to create a Healing and Environmental Garden at Hadassah Hospital-Mount Scopus.

 

 
Designed to provide a healing space for children with chronic illnesses, the six-dunam garden is landscaped with a boardwalk, maze, vegetable patch, flower arcade, and play spaces, along with magnificent views of the Jerusalem hills. While enhancing feelings of peace and tranquility, it is also a space that will encourage active play.
 
The garden will be available to patientsĺ families and friends and the general public, providing everyone with an oasis of calm and greenery.
 
The total cost to create the Healing and Environmental Garden is $1,679,000, which includes 10 years of daily maintenance and upkeep.  Hadassah Hospital will assume the responsibility for the garden after that time.
