a place of healing

Is a hospital a place of healing? I would imagine a place of healing to be stuffed full of nature. Like a garden with flowers, herbs, trees and shrubs. Plants with healing properties. Fresh water bubbling out of a spring which runs into a small stream supporting life that helps feed the eco system around it. Yet when I visit a hospital its the complete opposite of this. A man made maze of corridors that connect lots of rectangle rooms with cold hard floors. The artificial  heating system combines with the odours of people in a stuffy environment. No fresh air. How can healing happen in a sterile place like this?
