Rooftop garden in full bloom at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital

CLEVELAND – The community is invited to experience one of only a few hospital rooftop gardens in the country at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital (UH Rainbow). Angie’s Garden, a 7,500-square-foot healing garden located on UH Rainbow’s 9th floor, is a place where all patients and their families can be outside, away from the clinical environment, in their own nature oasis.

“Angie’s Garden is in full bloom, with a beautiful color palate that includes various scents and textures found in a sensory garden,” says Kristina Arthur, UH Rainbow’s horticulturalist. “It is amazing to watch a family enter the garden and see an instant and noticeable shift from patients and caregivers to simply kids and parents.”
