LPA worked closely with this client on the complete renovation and redesign of landscape, site work and site furnishings at this recently completed Regional Hospital in Irvine. Of particular interest is a garden design philosophy that comes from an emerging area of specialization in which several professions converge to create environments of care. LPA applied benchmarking and research on sustainable landscape and healthcare gardens to the project, in order to provide verifiable health benefits for patients, staff and visitors. The healing garden environments maximize the effectiveness of clinical treatments for illness and disabilities and create passive garden experiences that significantly reduce staff stress and absenteeism, improve patient health, increase client satisfaction and strengthen the bottom line.
