Mercy Community Healing Garden

Clive, IA

Mercy Cancer Center


Completed in 2016, the Mercy Cancer Center’s Community Healing Garden was designed to be a place for cancer patients and their families. The space is meant to serve as a healing and restful environment, complete with blooming perennials, bright annuals and the soothing sounds of a fountain.

In addition to a beautifully landscaped area for quiet contemplation, the garden also offers a community vegetable plot. Produce grown in the healing garden is free of charge to cancer patients in an effort to promote a healthy, plant-based diet.
