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.”

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.
