Evangelical Community Hospital: ECH Prime Tower Addition
Lewisburg, PA 17837
Architect: Callison RTKL
Art Count: 33
Timeline: February 2020 – September 2020
Project Type: New Construction / Hospital Addition
The ECH PRIME tower represented an opportunity to modernize the facility and bring the community back to the hospital with a refreshed brand and patient experience. The goal was to seamlessly tie the new tower into the existing facility, provide access to expanded patient services, and build upon the community’s longstanding relationship with the hospital.
Art goals were directed toward the creation of modern public spaces in which art serves as both wayfinding and a connection to the surrounding community. Large wall sized art commissions depicting stylized local landscapes have been scanned and reproduced as acoustical, and changeable art in a busy public concourse and as easily maintainable wallcovering in the Café. Additional contemporary art throughout the addition celebrates the natural beauty of Lewisburg, PA.
Black and white photos, chronicling the construction of the new tower are printed on multi-dimensional aluminum panels and mounted college style in the main elevator lobby. The artful composition documents and shares the construction process, through the eyes of local and nationally known photographer Leo Mendonca, with the community.
