LEXINGTON, N.C. – Sept. 22, 2016 – Yesterday, Hospice of Davidson County broke ground on a new serenity garden that will provide a place of tranquility and comfort for patients and their families.
Located on the Hospice of Davidson County property and situated to the right of The Henry Etta & Bruce Hinkle Hospice House, the new serenity garden will also be open and available for families in the community to celebrate life.
The garden will host 16 components including a rose garden, four water features, sculptures, benches, arbors and more. The initial construction will begin this fall, followed by major plants and installations with minor plants scheduled to be placed in spring 2017.
“We’re blessed to break ground on this serenity garden thanks to three generous lead gifts that will kick off the garden project that will span the next several months,” said Hospice of Davidson County CEO, Laura Owen. “We hope the garden’s addition to our 34-acre campus provides another place of solace and reflection for our patients, families and the community.”
