Healing Garden

"In terms of healing, a garden and the ability for patients to have that opportunity to step away from what is going on in their head and relax is so important," said Dr. K. Thomas Robbins, director of the SIU Cancer Institute at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine.


There is a walkway between The Baylis Medical Building and The Breast Center to help with easier access.
