The Inpatient Behavioral Health building offers two separate outdoor spaces—one for adolescents and teenagers and the other for our adult patients.
Adult courtyard: A healing outdoor space
Our adult courtyard features a number of healing elements such as:
- A labyrinth and water feature.
- Raised garden beds, which are also used as therapy for our patients
- Special landscaping that offers our patients privacy while adding beauty to the area.
Adolescent courtyard: An outdoor space for relaxation and play
Getting fresh air and sunlight is an important part of healing. That’s why Gundersen and our patient and family advisors designed an outdoor space just for our younger patients.
This courtyard has special features that appeal to many teens, like a basketball court.
The courtyard is one of the many healing elements that are part of the building’s design.
