New Presbyterian Rust Medical Center Showcases Dynamic Recognition Display

Dramatic Donor Recognition at Presbyterian Rust Medical Center

Presbyterian Healthcare Services of Albuquerque, New Mexico, furthered its reputation for providing advanced medical care with the recent opening of its dynamic new Rust Medical Center facility – and the unveiling of a dramatic recognition display, designed, fabricated and installed by Planned Legacy.

The integrated display, incorporating a 40” LCD monitor with interactive multimedia presentation, highlights materials and finishes that complement the hospital’s contemporary décor while employing elements such as brushed bronze and silver laminates along with anodized aluminum to create striking accents.

Overall, the display is 32’ wide x 8’ high but extends barely 12” from the wall, requiring unique supports because of the existing architectural masonry and windows. Finally, as with other projects Planned Legacy has created for Presbyterian, the display is shaped to emulate the nearby Sandia Mountains, visible right through the integrated windows.

Located in the main corridor adjacent to the waiting area, the display is situated in a high traffic area where it will be seen and appreciated by the hundreds of staff, visitors and patients who pass by daily. Some of the design features that have been incorporated into the display include:

- 8 mm tempered glass on which donor names are included using 40” h x 23” w vinyl graphic film

- Stainless steel stand-offs that secure the glass to the display

- An historical timeline that has been produced on a vinyl print on acrylic

- A picturesque image produced on vinyl film that surrounds the 40” LCD monitor

- A base finish of high pressure Cherry laminate with access panels for electronic service

- A mountain panel finish comprised of anodized aluminum sheet on brushed bronze and brushed silver laminates

The overall look and feel is engaging and inspiring and, based on comments from visitors, the display is a worthy testament to the many donors and supporters who made the new facility a reality.

“We are very pleased with the donor recognition wall that Planned Legacy developed for our new Rust Medical Center. It is impressive and beautifully complements the architectural design and interiors of the hospital. We are amazed at the number of visitors that stop by the wall to look at the history of Presbyterian and the donors listed on the wall. It is truly magnificent! Working with Planned Legacy was great. They were responsive, on time and on budget, and quick to respond to the usual last minute changes.”
