The Betsy and Richard Sheerr Patio at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery provides an alternative, fresh-air location for staff and visitors to congregate or share a meal.
As part of Einstein’s efforts to provide an alternative, fresh-air location for staff and visitors to congregate or share a meal, the Betsy and Richard Sheerr Patio at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery was intentionally designed and constructed as a companion project to The Jane and Leonard Korman Family Healing Garden.
"We felt it was important to take an integrated approach to the Healing Garden and outdoor patio,” says Richard, who was directly involved in the planning process. “When it became clear that our vision would require additional funding, Betsy and I stepped in to help because we thought this was a great idea.”
Situated near the building’s South Entrance, the patio features shaded tables and chairs for outdoor dining. It is bordered by trees, plantings and a walkway connecting to the garden. The integration of the garden and patio is especially meaningful for Richard because his parents were good friends with Leonard Korman’s parents, who are memorialized on the garden wall. The Sheerrs feel strongly that outdoor spaces are essential to advancing Einstein’s holistic healing mission.
We have a particular affinity for gardens and respect for the beauty and healthful effects of being outdoors, so this seemed like a good fit,” says Betsy.
