Patterns of Life
At the Saint Alphonsus Family Maternity Center, we think the arrival of a baby is the most joyous occasion of all. It's something proud parents, friends and family feel like sharing. That's why we've created the Patterns of Life, a tile quilt wall, designed by artist Steve Hanks. For a gift of $100, the child's name and birth date will be permanently listed on the Patterns of Life wall. In addition, a congratulatory card informing the parents of the gift and a keepsake certificate will be sent to the family.
Proceeds from the Patterns of Life wall are used to provide educational resources to the staff of the Family Maternity Center.
Tree of Life
The tree has long been a symbol of strength and comfort. It provides shelter, beauty and nourishment. It bends with grace in the wind and casts a cooling shadow in the heat. The tree symbolizes life itself. The Tree of Life is displayed in the new Center for Advanced Healing as a tribute to the great benefactors, Joe and Kathryn Albertson. The Tree of Life serves as a shining reminder of loved ones and a salute to their spirit. Names are engraved on leaves to recognize family and friends with cumulative gifts of $500 or more received in their memory or honor.
Saint Alphonsus has created a Wind Chime to honor and memorialize friends and loved ones. Names are engraved on plaques to recognize family and friends with cumulative gifts of $100 or more received in their memory or honor. The Wind Chime is located along the main entrance to Saint Alphonsus for all patients and visitors to see while enjoying the melody of the chimes.
Access to natural settings has been shown to offset the stress of a hospital admission on patients and their loved ones. Saint Alphonsus has incorporated this therapeutic principle into the rooftop Healing Garden accessible from the fourth floor of the new Center for Advanced Healing. The 6,500 sq.-ft., westward-facing garden is available to patients, family members, and hospital associates seeking a quiet place for respite and recuperation. Far more than an aesthetic enhancement, the incorporation of the Healing Garden is based on research demonstrating the impact of a patient's environment on their well-being – and their ultimate potential for recovery.
Simple remedies such as natural sunlight can yield a number of potential benefits, including reduced depression, improved sleep quality, and decreased perception of pain. Your generous gifts will provide for the maintenance and enhancement of this serene retreat, ensuring the garden – and its visitors – continue to flourish for the years to come. Names are engraved on plaques to recognize family and friends with cumulative gifts of $100 or more received in their memory or honor.
