Bethesda Foundation Healing Garden offers restfulness and healing
September 3, 2018
The healing garden at Bethesda Regional Health Centre is now complete, and is a beautiful, peaceful space. Long ago our community acknowledged that green spaces contribute to physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Since the hospital’s name came from a reference to the healing pools of Bethesda, it seemed appropriate that a water fountain should be a central feature of the “park” beside their hospital. This water fountain was built many years ago. A sundial surrounded by plaques honoring the founding pioneers was added in 1974 as a contribution from Bethesda Hospital to Steinbach’s centennial celebration.
Marg Rempel, one of the board members for Bethesda Foundation, states “We all appreciate the foresight of past generations, and because of this Bethesda Foundation had a vision of refurbishing this special space. Thank you to the generous donors who made available the necessary financial resources for this project to be completed in the summer of 2018.”
An official opening of the new healing garden will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 12 from 11-11:30am. We invite the community to join us for this event.
Natural beauty has always inspired restfulness and healing. We hope all who enter this space find peace of body, mind and soul.
