The new Creative Therapy Center and Healing Gardens at Magee Rehabilitation Center created non-traditional-hospital space on the building’s sixth-floor rooftop. A 15,000 sq. ft. rooftop was renovated to create spaces for patient treatment, as well as families and staff. All work was completed within an active hospital environment with no interruptions to care or services.

The exterior area provides several gardens and quiet meditation areas. Interior renovations provide facilities for physical and occupational therapy and include a three-season therapy area and outdoor spaces to teach skills relevant to meaningful, active lives.

The 6th floor features an expanded and open atrium, with upgrades to a rehab area for patients to relearn typical activities such as navigating sidewalks and streets, and using a car.

The Resource Center and Art Therapy program also has a new home, with spacious studios and two Art Therapy Galleries featuring artwork created by Magee patients.
