One of the main design elements is the inclusion of a sculptural pavilion by Ball Nogues Studio, that can be seen from patients rooms. The pavilion is fabricated from 2793 linear feet of 2-inch diameter mild steel tube that were bent with a computer numerically controlled rolling system. In total, there are 352 individual tubes that are unique in their design and together they form a structural shell.

Curved wood benches mimic the shape of the planters and add a second sculptural design to the gardens. At night, hidden lighting lights up the edge of the planters.
