Healthcare Design Sets Stage for Telling the Story of Southeast Health
Distinctive Art Source was honored to share the stage with our friends at Southeast Health, Starizon and PNM Architects at the Healthcare Design 2011 Conference in Nashville, TN earlier this month. The story we told was a powerful tale about life, hope and one Cancer Center’s journey to “Design the Cancer Patient Experience.”
Barbara Harriman, IIDA, President/Creative Director, Distinctive Art Source, presented along with Sly Moore, MA, MBA, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Southeast Health; Judy Aslin, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, Executive Director, Cancer Center, Southeast Health; Gary Adamson, Chief Experience Officer, Starizon Studios; and Brian Pansing, AIA, Principal, PNM Ltd. Architects.
In a room packed with more than 300 attendees, the group shared the story of how Southeast Health and Starizon Studios created a unique approach to the cancer patient experience that individualizes each patient’s journey while focusing on their life. Distinctive Art Source helped Southeast Health create a multimedia art program featuring local artists works that enhanced the patient journey through evidence and research based art selections. The program features 171 multimedia pieces of art that compliment the warm wood and stone interiors while portraying images with symbolic meanings that support the themes of Life, Hope and Journey. The Southeast Health Cancer Center opened in February 2011.
