Hello my name is Tim Gilbert I am the Grounds Director for Wellstar Health System in Atlanta, GA. I have been here 26 years. My department is over 11 Hospitals and over 150 medical centers. I have a staff of 24 full time guys. We work out of one shop and travel to each site ever week. We have beautiful gardens on many sites and sitting areas for visitors and staff. We have a Rehab Garden that allows patients to go outside and do their rehab. We have two Hospice Care sites. One has a beautiful concrete trail that goes through the woods at the foot of Kennesaw Mountain. It also has a garden where staff can take the patients outside to enjoy. Staff and visitors can go out and sit in the garden and eat and visit with their families. My staff installs beautiful flowers and pots at many locations twice a year. We are told many times how good the pots and flower beds look system-wide. My staff works very hard in the field while also being short staffed by seven people right now. We have 3 Health Parks and 1 Nursing home we also do with 1 more being built. We broke ground on a new ER at Kennestone in March. The Grounds department oversees everything grounds-related, from design to installing projects across the system. It would be very nice to be one of Soliant's Most Beautiful Hospital in the U.S. My staff would enjoy this.
