Best Real Estate Projects for New Construction - Sacramento Business Journal (2014)
The Mercy General Hospital project includes the campus’ main courtyard, surrounding parking areas, rear service entry and circular plaza with cascading water fountain and trellis. Located in East Sacramento, this project is valued by the surrounding community, patients, staff and visitors for its serene, verdant atmosphere.
The courtyard includes a terraced water feature with rock outcroppings, reflecting pond, healing garden, wood decking, custom metalwork, accent plantings and a variety of seating arrangements. Site landscape improvements integrate the hospital into the surrounding neighborhood with colorful, flowering and seasonally-varied plant material that is maintainable and resilient. A raised circular plaza along 39th Street includes a large wooden trellis, tiered water fountain, brick seatwalls, and accent lighting. Portions of the project were made possible through generous donations of the hospital staff and Sacramento community in order to provide spaces for comfort, healing and rejuvenation.
