The Delta Hospital Healing Garden was focused on creating a useable exterior courtyard for both patients and visitors as part of the new hospital entry extension. The hospital courtyard design was based on providing a place of relaxation, meeting, and visual interest for the surrounding rooms and facilities enclosing the space.

Although patient safety and movement was the primary concern in the design of the courtyard, all efforts were made to provide a variety of unique spaces through the use of different surface materials, landscape structures, water features, and plant material. DK worked with a groups including hospital staff, Delta Hospital Foundation, consultants, patients, specialty contractors, and the Delta Rotary Clubs to achieve the best possible design. As the majority of the courtyard fundraising was done through the Rotary Clubs and outside donations, a concerted effort was made to design and detail the landscape so both contractors and volunteers could be involved in its construction. The final courtyard space provides a great outside amenity space and unique visual backdrop to the new hospital entry that everyone involved in the project can take pride in.
