The impact of the Healing Garden on our patients, and on our physicians and staff, has been nothing short of extraordinary. From morale and pride, to patient care, to a spirit of healing and recovery, it profoundly affects us every day.
Becky Pape, CEO, Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital
Mr. Kurisu has a unique way about bringing nature and healing to the projects and the public spaces that he creates and we're hoping that the space will not only be significant in terms of waste water treatment, but it will be significant for the community ... as a place where water is reconnected back to the essence of who we are.
