Respite Garden

We are proud to announce that as of August 2015, the Construction of the Respite Garden is now complete! A breathtaking addition to CHOP's Ambulatory Care Center.

The building is designed to provide patients with views of the plaza and roof garden. Studies show that green space provides a calming influence that reduces stress, speeds the healing process, and increases productivity. Patients often report feeling better after spending time in a garden and tolerate medical procedures more easily. The newly created landscapes embody the Buerger Center mission as a designated place for reflection, recovery and healing by using the best sustainable practices and green initiatives, which in turn reflect a lush and healthy ecology.

With philanthropic support from the Matthew Renk Foundation, these beautiful green spaces will reach their full potential, reinforcing the building as a place of comfort, healing and all-round excellence.
