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.”

When Overlake Hospital Medical Center, a premier hospital in Bellevue, Washington, wanted to recognize key donors in celebration of its 50-year history, there were three clear directives:

  • the recognition needed to be innovative, in keeping with the region’s rich history of technical development
  • the recognition needed elegant design and finishes distinct to the facility
  • the project needed to reflect the unique relationships between the institution’s three pillars, the Hospital, the Foundation and the Auxiliaries.

Planned Legacy’s approach to the project centered on getting to know Overlake, following our belief that the best way to understand an installation is to understand the culture comprising the institution. Design followed shortly after preliminary meetings and an extensive site visit.

Planned Legacy’s strong dedication to customer satisfaction and willingness to stand behind their work shine above other vendors that I have worked with. I was especially impressed by the time and effort their team spent understanding our institutional culture, project goals, and community feel. The end result was a display that clearly reflects the style, values, and passion of our organization. — Robin Webster, Director, Operations and Donor Relations, Overlake Hospital Foundation, Bellevue WA

The display was designed in two major sections — 21’ 9″ wide and 12’ wide — to best marry the architectural elements of the corridor location’s hefty vertical columns with the display’s content requirements. Both sections feature linear components and a series of rectangular tempered glass panels, placed in horizontal and vertical alignments. Providing additional continuity are the vertical light-boxes which feature bear-grass ensconced in an eco-resin. These panels provide a warm Earthy element without compromising the sterility of the hospital environment.

The larger wall’s glass panels feature information about the Foundation and Auxiliaries, Annual Donors Lists and Benefactor information as well as Honorarium and In Memory listings. Anchoring the section, on the far left, is a 40″ interactive touch-screen display in a landscape configuration. The multimedia presentation provides an immersive destination with five modules.

The smaller wall was dedicated to Major Donors, including lifetime donors over $100,000 and a listing of endowments. The centerpiece of the wall is a 40″ interactive touch-screen display in portrait configuration, which honors million dollar plus donations. The multimedia is narrative in nature and shares the stories behind the generosity of the institution’s largest supporters.

Planned Legacy was selected by the Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation of Albuquerque, New Mexico, to design an integrated donor recognition display that would elevate the Foundation’s message and achievements to a new level.

Blending natural hues with indirect lighting, Planned Legacy captured the colors and textures of the surrounding landscape and Sandia Mountains to create an inspiring panorama for the architectural component of the display. Glass panels, a photomural and historic images were blended in to celebrate donors, honour early Hospital leaders and promote the Foundation’s achievements and activities.

To compliment the recognition display and attract visitors, staff and contributors at first point of contact, a 40″ touch-enabled LCD screen complete with interactive multimedia presentation was added. The presentation showcases the Foundation, its leadership and vision using a combination of text, photos and video.

Visitors to the display can search donor profiles and names, watch video clips of noteworthy individuals and events, and even make a contribution to the Foundation by using a secure credit card swipe that transmits information instantly to the Foundation office.

Brigham & Women’s Hospital creates three new Donor Recognition Displays with Planned Legacy

Brigham And Womens Hospital Recognition Display

Brigham & Women's Hospital Donor Recognition Display with Interactive Multimedia

After conducting a thorough analysis of their recognition program and determining their requirements, Brigham & Women’s Hospital (BWH) in Boston, Massachusetts understood that their first significant recognition display needed to make a statement while also providing exceptional recognition to its supporters.

The new display would have to communicate the Hospital’s history and Harvard University affiliation while also recognizing and celebrating the thousands of individuals and organizations who have continued to support BWH since it was established.  And they wanted to do this with an architectural display that combined both tradition and technology. The firm that BWH selected to fulfill its vision was Planned Legacy, chosen for its leadership in display design as well as multimedia programming.

The environment for the new recognition display was to be the Hospital’s refurbished lobby, a high traffic area with thousands of daily visitors.  After extensive meetings and collaboration with Development and facilities staff as well as architects and other Hospital leaders, Planned Legacy designers created an engaging concept of three adjacent displays; two for donor and Legacy recognition, and a third for use by the Hospital’s Public Affairs department.

Making liberal use of wood-grain laminates, glass and custom fabricated metal, the displays were designed to complement the work of the Hospital’s architects, who were simultaneously remodeling the Hospital’s lobby and Emergency Department entrance.

The first display honors contributors to the BWH Hippocrates Society and Legacy Society as well as the organization’s Pillar Society. Donor names are highlighted on tempered glass panels beneath a large display-wide panel with full color graphic images of staff, donors and Hospital leaders.  This graphic area is backlit with strategically placed lighting that frames the entire display from the top down.

Accenting the display is a 40-inch LCD monitor which features an informative and entertaining interactive multimedia presentation that includes a compelling message from the Hospital, achievements and initiatives, donor recognition and donor profiles.

Planned Legacy creates three new integrated donor recognition displays for Benefis Health System

Recently, Benefis Health System completed construction of its new Patients Tower, a seven story, $85 million project that features some of the most advanced diagnostic and treatment facilities in the US Midwest.

An important element of the project was the requirement for a series of recognition and historical displays that would match the innovation and architecture of the new hospital.

The project involved the design, fabrication and installation of three unique integrated displays, each incorporating interactive multimedia presentations along with architectural design that embraced the local geography, while also communicating the messages of the Benefis organization the respective display represented.

The recognition project included a large main floor recognition display, a smaller self-standing enclosure, and a second floor recognition display, each of which feature an interactive multimedia presentation that provides visitors with a comprehensive overview on the Benefis Healthcare Foundation. Modules in the presentation include:

•    About The Benefis Healthcare Foundation
•    Our Sincere Thanks (Donor Recognition)
•    How Your Gifts Work Wonders (Physician & Patient Testimonials)
•    The Gift of Time (Volunteer Recognition)
•    Calendar of Events

As well, when the multimedia presentation screen has been idle for a period of time a screen saver engages that can show a scrolling list of donors, Mission Statement or other call to action.

Headquartered in Great Falls, Montana, Benefis Health System serves over 15 counties and more than 225,000 residents. Benefis is also the largest non-governmental employer in the greater Great Falls area with over 2,300 employees.
