Neuendorff, shown at right top, said at the dedication ceremony that the labyrinth was intended to provide a peaceful, meditative place that would help combat the worry and stress often experienced by patients, families and staff at HMC.
The $17,000 cost for the project was raised by selling flowers, greeting cards and raffle tickets, serving lunches and through employee donations. A plaque thanking donors for their generosity is shown at right bottom.
Landscape artist and labyrinth designer Sandy Vest, of Woodland Landscape, helped offset some of the project costs by donating plants and a portion of her services, according to HMC officials. She is pictured at at left, walking along the path.
“The staff at Hospice of Medina County were amazing when my husband was ill,” said Vest. “Being a part of the labyrinth construction allowed me to show my appreciation.”
Hospice of Medina County has provided hospice and palliative care throughout Medina, Summit and surrounding counties for more than 30 years, according to HMC officials. For more information about available services, call 330-722-4771.
