Healing Garden

Carilion Clinic, in partnership with the City of Roanoke, created the Dr. Robert L.A. Keeley Healing Garden on the Roanoke River Greenway near Roanoke Memorial Hospital. The healing garden provides a relaxing atmosphere for patients, visitors and staff to sit or swing and enjoy fragrant plants and the soothing sound of moving water.

This title is inspired by the month and weather we have been having, yes, but it is mainly inspired by the powerful experience of the burden burning ceremony that took place this past Wednesday, April 26 at noon in front of the hospital.

What a Wonderful World”
Kristen and Rob Smith performing as Carrington Kay

This is Carrington Kay checking in after our first month as Healing Arts Artists-in-Residence. It is truly incredible that a month has passed, but even more so because of the amazing giving and receiving found within it because of the Healing Arts.

I met her on 10 South—oncology and palliative care—in January, soon after I started as artist-in-residence. Some patients are hesitant to work with me (I’m not an artist, they’ll say. Oh, I can’t draw at all.). Even after I assure them that my kind of art is about the process, because, well, actually I’m a writer, they’re still unsure.
