Art Students Brighten View for Genesis Pediatric Patients
Friday, May 20, 2022
Art students from Ohio University (OU) recently painted murals at Genesis HealthCare System to brighten the view for pediatric patients and their families. The Pediatric Unit on the main floor of Genesis Hospital had a plain, wooden fence surrounding the windows to protect patients’ privacy. The fence now features colorful, calming scenes to provide a better patient experience and promote healing and wellness.
A committee of Genesis employees worked with the art students and their professor to design the murals, and the students brought the designs to life. The materials for the project were funded by the Genesis HealthCare Foundation.
Standing in front of the murals on the fence painted by Ohio University art students are (front row) Jana Bell, Childbirth Education/Lactation Coordinator, Angela Brado, Operational Manager of Nursery, Pediatrics, Lactation and Childbirth Education, (back row) Angie Stillion, Administrative Assistant, and Megan Goins, Pediatric R.N.
