By , March 2nd, 2022

Does your company have an upcoming anniversary? Not sure when or how to start planning? We’ve covered the “5 P’s” that can make your anniversary a memorable success – read about it in our post “What Makes a Company Anniversary Memorable? The 5 P’s!” However, whether you’re planning for a corporate, hospital, or association anniversary, there are also 5 Big Mistakes you’ll want to avoid:

    3. Fail to have a contingency plan for an outdoor celebration

Art we have created over the past 25 years for hospital anniversaries continues to communicate mission, values, and expertise during the unprecedented health challenges of 2020-2021. We honor the frontline caregivers who write a new chapter in their hospital’s history, with their sacrifice and lifesaving skills. And we hope their hospital’s lobby art brings good memories and inspiration as they revisit their legacy.

As scientists study how our physical environment affects us, we are learning that the art in hospitals is more important than we ever imagined. There is now a large body of research behind the selection of evidence-based art. This method of choosing artwork aims to help hospital administrators make decisions that are scientific rather than purely aesthetic. Some visual elements, particularly artwork that includes natural themes and people, have shown to be beneficial to patient recovery and staff morale. Laura Landro explores this idea in an interesting article for the Wall Street Journal. The article looks at ways hospitals are using art to improve patient care and the healing process. (more…)

The superhuman efforts frontline hospital workers are putting forth to treat and protect people during Covid-19 continue to inspire us. We remember especially the many dedicated CEO’s, doctors, nurses, staff we’ve collaborated with to commemorate their hospitals’ histories as they now contend with challenges unimaginable to the founders.  They are adding a powerful, new chapter.

Along with mission, accomplishments and expertise, our One Of A Kind’s hospital art includes pictures of past healthcare heroes. No doubt we’ll need to make room for more.

Here are just a few of the people and hospitals we salute with special appreciation, honoring the work you are doing every day.

By , June 29th, 2015

It was our great fortune to commemorate Kennedy Health’s 50th anniversary with One Of A Kind art AND to attend their celebration in Stratford, NJ. Collage items came to life as we met the people they represented. Perhaps most memorably, I was able to speak with Dr. David Condoluci. Previously I’d sent him, in appreciation, a poster of my Names Project Quilt artwork after learning how he’d treated AIDS patients since the 1980s. The compassion he conveyed—even 30 years later–about those challenging early days was moving. (more…)
