UF Health has earned a 2018 City Beautification Award for the stunning design of our new UF Health Heart & Vascular and UF Health Neuromedicine hospital and property.  Each year, the city of Gainesville recognizes projects with “outstanding aesthetic and artistic appeal,” evaluated for originality, innovation, creativity and sustainability.  The site must reflect appropriate use of land and improve the surrounding area.  The hospital facility is located along the Rails to Trails corridor, visually connected with Gainesville’s award-winning DNA Bridge.  The hospitals embrace a large landscaped area, expanding the existing healing garden with additional walkways weaving through native plantings, sculptures emphasizing natural materials, a gazebo and several water features. – Kim Rose for the May issue of The Post
