Bergan Mercy Medical Center is dedicating its new project today
The walk down the long hallway to the radiation oncology unit at Bergan Mercy Medical Center hasn't been all that pleasant for the past couple of years.
Besides the fact that patients are heading to a radiation treatment, the view out the window has been of 6,400 square feet of dirt and mulch.
Today, the view and the space are improved. Hospital officials hope patients' attitudes and general health will be, too.
Bergan officials are dedicating a "healing garden" in the space, incorporating flowers, plants, trees, a fountain and tables, chairs and benches. Crews from Lanoha Nursery have just finished planting the garden. The $250,000 cost of the project was paid by private donors, hospital staff and the Alegent Creighton Health Foundation.
