Hospitals: See This Personalized Art’s Impact
Anniversary Lobby Shadowbox & Retirement Gifts
How Do Hospitals Celebrate a Milestone Anniversary?
With a milestone anniversary approaching, hospitals near and far have looked to One Of A Kind Art Studio for its unique ability to capture history, mission, accomplishments, and expertise in 3-dimensional art as a lasting tribute in the lobby. An expert research process with clear steps, approval checkpoints, and a confirmed timetable ensures attention to detail as the story comes to life.
The positive impact includes: a healing effect for patients (Ulrich and Gilpin 2003), stress reliever for staff, and familiar landmark for visitors. Visitors can also learn more about your brand and receive reassurance regarding your values and expertise. Staff can also feel a sense of appreciation and purpose as the hospital’s mission and achievements are displayed along with a dedication message.
An interactive website feature extends the art’s reach. Online visitors can click individual items within the art to enlarge an item’s image and read its description. Check out how Floyd Medical Center uses this informative and user-friendly tool to showcase items’ historical significance. An interactive touch screen in the lobby can give in-person visitors the same level of detail.
One Of A Kind has been honored to work with over 45 hospitals and medical organizations, creating masterful storytelling opportunities in lobbies and also honoring retiring leaders with personalized tributes.
How Do Hospitals Honor Retiring Leaders?
As leaders retire, a challenging task presents itself. How do you honor decades of heart, dedication, and hard work poured into patients? One Of A Kind offers a memorable way to commemorate their personal stories.
From the overall design theme to color scheme and frame choice, there are many opportunities to personalize the look and feel of the art for the recipient. Selecting content will also determine the design direction. The story can include alma maters, family portraits, and hobbies, or the story can fully focus on career milestones. Often a combination of the two is selected.
A dedication allows for a heartfelt farewell message and/or summary of the honoree’s impact at the hospital or medical organization. Often photoengraved on metal, the dedication can ground the art, capturing the recipient’s legacy and expressing gratitude.
Graphs and/or location maps can be helpful visuals to communicate a story of growth over the recipient’s tenure. 3D objects, either life-size or recreated as miniature replicas, can become hidden gems that the honoree discovers over time. Examples include: medical equipment, awards, favorite foods, cars, hobbies, and sports. Can you spot the Oreo in Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, the gray sedan in eviCore, or the golf ball in Caring Communities?
