Patient Experience Fund: Support hospital projects and initiatives that directly impact the patient-family centered experience.

Linda’s Fund: Provides in-home, private-duty care for oncology patients who need assistance with activities of daily living while undergoing treatment.

The Healing Garden

Healing Garden Full

WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital healing garden offers space for reflection

WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital created a dedicated space where patients, visitors and staff members can reflect and renew their spirits as they deal with health challenges and stress.

The healing garden provides a year-round area of renewal that is an important addition to a facility dedicated to offering hope and healing.

The garden is a tangible example of Gettysburg Hospital Foundation’s Patient Experience Fund. The fund provides financial support for hospital projects and initiatives that directly impact the patient-family centered experience. Contributions from the Gettysburg Hospital Auxiliary made the healing garden a reality.

The garden features several opportunities to honor a loved one or an important person through a memorial gift. Opportunities include personalized brick pavers and benches.

Available Healing Garden Naming Opportunities

  • Brick Paver - $250
  • Bench - $3,000 (includes inscribed plaque)

Naming Opportunities are also available at the Cancer Center Healing Garden at the Adams Health Center and at WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital. For more information, contact the Gettysburg Hospital Foundation at 717-337-4175.
