Beautiful spaces like the Lawrence A. Testa Healing Garden can only be developed and sustained through the generosity of others. Recently the Garnet Health Foundation funded a Fitness Trail around the hospital campus' perimeter. Patients, staff and visitors use these natural spaces to enhance their health and quiet reflection.
To continue Mr. Testa's wish to provide outdoor healing spaces, the following is a list of naming opportunities in the Garden and on our new Fitness Trail.
Exercise Stations - $10,000
There are seven stations on the Fitness Trails and all provide different exercises but together offer a full work out. Donor recognition is affixed to an adjacent post. Two stations remain available for naming.
Benches - $5000
Benches are located in the Testa Garden and along the Fitness trail. There are 11 of 13 benches available for naming in the Testa Garden. Benches along the Fitness Trail are sold out. Donor recognition plaque is affixed directly to the bench.
Birdhouses - $1200
Houses are mounted atop a 4x4 post with a donor recognition plaque.
Testa Garden Fund
All gifts to the Fund sustain the Garden for years to come. Improvements and upgrades are needed every season and projects may include new plantings, stream repair, mulch and new decorative stone, among other garden needs.
The hospital provides a heavily used outdoor dining area just outside its cafeteria and adjacent to the Conference Center where engraved donor bricks are installed. Two sizes: 8x8, $500 and 4x8, $250.
