Healing Hands Portrait Series
To highlight our experienced and compassionate nurses and staff, St. Mark’s Hospital featured a portrait series throughout the facility to help connect patients to their caregivers in a meaningful and emotional way to humanize the hospital experience.
Healing Hands: Portraits and Stories of St. Mark’s Team Members featured the photographs of 36 St. Mark’s employees from various departments to honor the work they do for patients and families every day. Each portrait was accompanied by a story; some biographical, others anecdotes of experiences that led employees to become caregivers and healthcare professionals.
The exhibit was created to demonstrate the power of arts in medicine. The purpose of the portraits was to help build community by sharing personal, inspiring and real stories about the staff who will be caring for patients during what can often be an emotional time.
