Overview

Virtua Voorhees, Virtua Health Replacement Hospital

Campus Garden

Voorhees, New Jersy

Overview

For Virtua Healthcare's 125-acre campus located within the Atlantic Coastal Pine Barrens eco-region, HGA Landscape Architecture transformed the site into a natural oasis with preserved forests and wetlands that visually extends the surrounding wilderness to the hospital's front door. Between the site perimeter and hospital, the landscape transitions from wilderness to formal healing gardens, in which species identified in the pre-development plant inventory creates unique micro-ecosystems that represent forest, meadow, and wetland. Four courtyards, three green roof gardens, and a children's therapy garden further blend the site's ecological context and provide a variety of outdoor healing spaces that bring nature within reach of all patients.
