Historic Healthcare Looks to the Future
Posted by Amy / to Case Studies, Healthcare, Industry Trends / on February 8, 2012

Founded in 1565, St. Augustine, FL is the oldest continuously occupied European-established city and port in the continental United States. The Flagler Hospital opened in St. Augustine in 1890 and has operated as a non-profit institution in the city ever since. When it came time to renovate last year, hospital designers wanted to emulate the forward thinking artistic community while preserving the organization's history and creating a sense of balance for its patients.

With their dynamic needs in mind, Fogle Fine Art selected artwork from Grand Image with clean lines and bold colors and chose modern mediums such as photography on acrylic combined with traditional prints on canvas. These images combined with artwork by local Florida artists complement the dynamic St. Augustine community and reflect the history of the hospital while looking toward the future and the cutting edge technology the hospital offers its patients.

Hospitals are dynamic places. They are buildings filled with healing and hope and at the same time houses of anxiety and grief. Sometimes pictures of natural beauty and scenes of serenity are necessary to keep an area calm; Nobody really wants to look at jarring or edgy imagery while waiting for a loved one to come out of surgery. But these health centers are also the places where revolutionary advances in medicine are made and progressive healing techniques are developed. Flanking the walls with modern art relays a sense of positive energy and forward thinking. Color and movement breathe life into these spaces and sometimes that is just what the Doctor ordered!
