Having a labyrinth
at the John George Psychiatric Pavilion-
of the Alameda County Medical Center

has been a long, heart felt desire of
their Occupational Therapy Manager,
Terri Daugherty, OTR/L


WheGuy Qvistgaard
came on board as the
JGPP Hospital Administrator,
Terri's dream
became a reality...

I had the honor
and privilege to design
a one-of-a kind labyrinth
that fits into their existing courtyard
and grove of magnolia trees...

With pops of rainbows
for patients and staff
to pause upon
as they make their way
through the meandering path
to the spiral center...

speaks to the path of healing
in mind, spirit, and in body...
