Dedicated to healing the whole person—mind, body and soul—Banner Gateway Medical Center offers an enhanced healing environment for patients and their families.
Outdoor gardens, natural light, flowing water and quiet spaces for relaxation all come together to make Banner Gateway a peaceful place for healing. Research has proven that this type of setting can speed the healing process. We certainly hope it does for you and your family.
Several gardens are available for patients and visitors to enjoy.
- Canyon Garden - The Canyon Dining area is adjacent to the Canyon Café on the first floor of the hospital. Plant life and a peaceful waterfall create a comfortable space for enjoying an espresso or smoothie from our Espresso Bar.
- Meditation Garden – This quiet respite located by the chapel is the perfect place to relax.
- Women’s Garden – This garden is exclusively for patients
and families in Women and Infants Services. This garden
offers a secure location for laboring mothers to stroll and for
families to gather. It is accessible only to patients in this area.
Through the Banner Gateway Medical Center Volunteer department, canines aid in the healing process. Specially trained and certified Dog Therapy teams travel throughout the hospital visiting patients and visitors. Ask your nurse about our dog therapy.
To ensure your spiritual and emotional needs are met, interfaith hospital chaplains are available around the clock to meet with you.
The Chapel, located on the first of the hospital, is open daily for quiet reflection and meditation. If you are in need of a spiritual conversation or emotional support, ask your nurse to place a request for a chaplain.
