Healing Garden at the Medical Center

.

Next to the helicopter landing pad,  in between the sprawled-out buildings of big Soroka  Medical Center in Beer Sheva,  is this sculpture-filled garden.
In Hebrew its name is Gan Roga', meaning a garden of calmness and relaxation.
In English it became the Legacy Heritage Healing Garden.

Legacy Heritage Fund's motto is  "the light of the past will illuminate the future."


Benches to welcome patients or their visitors.
Shade is needed on the hot days in the Negev desert.

(For ABC Wednesday,  M is for Medical Center.)
(And also linking to signs, signs .)

I like both translations - perhaps the Hebrew version slightly more.

Looks like a pleasant place for a stroll. Perhaps that in itself is healing.

We can all use some 'healing' even if it's from the sun's rays.
