The idea for the Courtyard Garden began in 1996, when hospital employees held their first-ever Employee Caring Campaign to raise money for a peaceful, natural setting that would be a resource for emotional and spiritual needs. Engraved bricks beautify the garden walks with special tributes and memorials that can be revisited from year to year.
Engraved bricks are available with a gift of $150 per brick.
Tranquility Garden Tiles
This garden was created as a result of a generous gift from SSM Health St. Mary's Auxiliary. It's a place to enjoy a tranquil, scenic and beautiful outdoor space. Its location on top of the second floor provides a unique environment for reflection and relaxation. The path through the garden is constructed of tiles that are available for personalized engraving. To order an engraved tile, or for more information, please contact the Foundation office by email or phone at 608-258-5600.
Tiles can be engraved and installed with a gift of $3,000.
The Gardens of St. Mary’s
Rich in heritage and symbolism, The Gardens of SSM Health St. Mary's are made possible through gifts to SSM Health St. Mary's Foundation - Madison. The healing gardens are a monument to SSM Health St. Mary's roots and a reminder to all that the mission of the sisters continues to grow. Various areas of the gardens have a tangible link to the hospital past and are designed as a healing space for emotional and spiritual growth of patients, staff and community members alike.
