Project Description & Details

St. Luke’s Magic Valley’s new state-of-the-art medical center opened its doors in 2011 to meet the healthcare needs of the rapidly growing region. Built for the 21st Century, it incorporated features designed to promote maximum patient comfort and quality patient care. The St. Luke’s design team goals were to provide a state-of-the-art “green” facility.

Putting a public face on a hospital’s green initiative has helped to spread awareness of environmental issues. In the case of Magic Valley, the public face came in the form of the hospital’s rooftop gardens. Designed by South Landscape Architecture, the gardens serve to remind the public of the importance of plant life and give patients a beautiful view from their hospital rooms. Tournesol Siteworks’ GRT3 Modular Green Roof Trays were planted with a variety of native sedums filled with a local planting soil mix.
