Memory Tree

Like the roots of a tree, the memories of our loved ones run deep and sustain us. Likewise, its branches both protect us from the elements and offer beauty in times of sadness. Both strong and vulnerable, this tree can hold our memories and symbolize new life.

The Memory Tree is located at Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital in the third-floor Visitor’s Lounge. Both the lounge and the Memory Tree are generously sponsored in memory of Kenneth Stevens, MD. The metal tree was created by Oregon artist Ken Scott.

To engrave a leaf in memory of a loved one, please donate $25 or more per leaf and complete the form below. In the comment section, include the date your loved one passed away.

A limited number of leaves are available. Proceeds will support Arts in Health Care funded by the Pacific Communities Health District Foundation.
