Clare Cooper Marcus in the book "Therapeutic Landscapes, an Evidence-Based Design Approach to Healing Gardens and Restorative Outdoor Space", mentions some factors for medical centers with evidencebased approach and communication with natural environment, including the importance of elderly and children, mentally disabled patients and veterans and wounded warriors, the importance of collaborative design, preparing utilities for gardening and landscaping, the impact of such gardens in solving social problems such as divorce and homelessness, the need for paying attention to rehabilitation patients, considering the differences and advantages of the soft landscape and the state of functional usage of different types of soft and hard landscape, the public dimension of therapeutic gardens and their multifunctional aspects of healing landscape, and in the end, gardening as a treatment. On this basis, in the present article, through an analytical-descriptive approach and after presenting a history of healing gardens and therapeutic landscapes, the authors offer samples of references and explore the theories of Cooper Marcus in the field of therapeutic gardens. As the book Therapeutic Landscapes is one of the most comprehensive and authoritative instructions for the design of healing gardens and outdoor spaces of medical centers, the results of the present article are an influential reference for landscape architects and planners, authorities and founders of the field of medicine in order to achieve qualitative features in design and construction of medical centers.
