The Rhonda Fleming Carlson Inspiration Garden Blessing and Dedication

December 16, 2014

The Rhonda Fleming Carlson Inspiration Garden was blessed and dedicated on May 22 before an intimate group of Carlson’s family and friends. The garden, located at the main entrance of Saint John’s Health Center on the lower garden level, serves as a place of healing and serenity. The garden features two historical art pieces from the original Saint John’s building: a lovely statue of the Blessed Mother Mary, which was acquired in 1954, near a smaller statue of Saint Bernadette. In her remarks, Rhonda said: “I fell in love with Saint John’s Health Center when I first entered its doors years ago and felt a spiritual sense of love and caring and a serenity that I’d never experienced at any other hospital. My prayer for all who gaze upon this garden is that they find comfort and hope in the beauty of this sanctuary.”
