Memorial Garden

The Bertrand Chaffee Hospital Foundation Memorial Garden was installed in 2013, inspired by the lives and legacies of two longtime hospital volunteers, Dr. Craig Wiede and Dr. Richard Nowak. It is maintained through support from the Foundation and its donors. The Foundation is currently offering Memorial Bricks for donors to reserve and have engraved; these bricks will be installed in a wall between the garden and the hospital's front entrance later this summer.

Individuals, groups, organizations, families and businesses may purchase these bricks as a way to memorialize friends and family members who have passed away. You might also consider using a brick as a way to pay tribute to people who have held a special place in your life.

We have opportunities available to dedicate a bench, furniture, planters and other garden items as well. These bricks are available for a limited time and will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Memorial Garden 

The idea of a Memorial Garden for the hospital was a natural fit to pay tribute to the memory of all volunteers who have contributed to the growth of Bertrand Chaffee Hospital and Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home. It serves as a peaceful, beautiful space for hospital patients, visitors and staff to enjoy the outdoors.

Perennial plants and flowers within the garden include pink astible, blue geranium, hydrangea, hosta, daylilies, irises, peonies, black-eyed susans, roses, and sedum.

The Memorial Garden was designed by Connie Lydon of Lydon Landscape and Design and installed by Claire Brown of A Growing Business.
