Nostalgic Artwork Shared With New Hospitals – Parkland and UMC New Orleans

by on July 27, 2015

Two of our clients are fast approaching their opening days. Both the new Parkland Hospital in Dallas and University Medical Center New Orleans are working fast and furious to get ready for patient day one in their new spaces, and we couldn’t be more honored to be by their sides for this very important transition.

We wanted to commemorate the significance of the transition into new space for both hospitals by honoring the space they are in now – their current hospital buildings.

These spaces they are leaving have been home to many stories of courage, dedication, life, healing, passing, strength and compassion. Stairwells have been home to conversations between caregivers about patients, pay phones have helped family members relay news about loved ones, and hallways have been where tears are shed. The spaces of hospitals hold many wonderful stories of care.

So, to honor those stories and help bring the nostalgia of them into the new space, Blue Cottage gifted our two dear transition clients with a 10-piece photography series of their soon-to-be former hospital buildings – in an effort to capture the nostalgia of their spaces and heritage in their histories.

Congratulations to both Parkland Hospital and UMC New Orleans on pending moves. May your new halls hold many more wonderful stories of care.

The photos below are a collage of the installed series on display at the new hospitals.
