NGMC Gainesville

Northeast Georgia Medical Center Gainesville

Northeast Georgia Medical System employed HGOR to create a comprehensive landscape master plan for its Gainesville campus. HGOR initiated a charrette exercise with the hospital’s key stakeholders to explore and establish a cohesive landscape concept. As a result, HGOR designed a plan to reflect the thirteen counties served by the community hospital.

The plan greets the community and visitors at the entrance with a celebration of the region’s landscape vernacular. The entrance feature employs indigenous stonework, native plant palettes and a waterfall traversing the central island of the entrance drive.

HGOR also carried the landscape theme into several pocket gardens across the campus to serve as Donor Gardens. The gardens offer opportunities for benefactors to leave a lasting legacy while providing special outdoor respites in which visitors can relax and enjoy. HGOR compiled all of the concepts into an inspirational guide book for the hospital’s future donors.
