Rogers Memorial Hospital, Children and Adolescent Center
Focused on offering behavioral health services for adults, adolescents and children in several locations, Rogers Memorial Hospital has long understood the importance of having therapeutic outdoor spaces for patients and residents to assist with their treatment. After completing the landscape master plan for the hospital’s 50-acre Oconomowoc campus, Hitchcock Design Group was retained to design a therapeutic garden for the new Children and Adolescent Center that was built on the campus. The design of the garden was informed by soliciting input from the Doctor’s and Staff who treat the patients to insure the therapeutic space led to the appropriate experiences and provided additional areas for programming for the patients. As the garden is for children and adolescents, items that appealed to their age level were also incorporated into the design while still being mindful of creating a place of healing and respite for them.

“Hitchcock thinks beyond straight lines and 90-degree angles.”
“With Hitchcock, I felt like they really went above and beyond, and they’re extremely responsive. They take more of a leadership role, which is helpful, especially with a complicated project.”
“Communication, creativity, meeting timeliness, meeting institutional expectations; we’re not an easy client. Hitchcock goes out of their way to work with us.”
“Hitchcock goes out of their way to make sure they’re responsive, helpful, and doing things that aren’t necessarily their responsibility. They’re just all-around quality. Any project that I do going forward they will always, always be included in my RFP, whether it’s city or suburban.”
“They’ve earned our trust. They listen to us and come back with solutions that really meet our needs. They let you start to dream …”
“Some architects will just say ‘how dare you!’ but Hitchcock encourages changes. Relationships and creativity is what it boils down to—it’s why I like them the best and what sets them apart from others.”

“Their work comes with a level of empathy with the user to say ‘it’s more than plants. How can this be an uplifting space? How can this invigorate someone?’ That’s different. That’s unique.”
“They work in a very collaborative manner in discussions and presentations. They make sure you fully understand it. If there are any questions at all, they can help you with it.”
“What keeps coming back to me is their willingness, their ability, and their responsiveness to help manage the situation at hand.”
“One of Hitchcock’s strengths is the amount of work they put in when they’re getting to know a community. They show you they really understand the issues your community is considering. They’re very thorough in their approach. It’s clear they’ve done their homework.”
