Architectural Donor Walls - donor recognition, contributions
Northeast Health is a comprehensive network of healthcare, supportive housing and community services facilities serving 22 counties in upstate New York. As part of Northeast Health, Albany Memorial Hospital and Samaritan Hospital serve the network’s 175,000 annual patients. Working with a local contractor, Planned Legacy designed architectural donor walls for the front lobbies of both Albany Memorial Hospital and Samaritan Hospital.
Samaritan Hospital Donor Wall
A 238-bed community hospital founded in 1898, Samaritan Hospital offers an array of services to the people of Troy. Using the same Nubian Brown and maple laminate color palate, integrating with existing design was again paramount.
The resulting Robinson Lobby donor wall design is both elegant and contemporary, featuring six portrait boxes, a center section with three overlapping images of Troy, New York and two side sections for donor names and contributions.
Albany Memorial Hospital Donor Wall
Dating from 1868, Albany Memorial Hospital has a long and distinguished history. When the time came to develop a new donor wall, integration with the overall look of prior architecture was an important concern.
In keeping with pre-existing installations, the Nubian Brown laminate wall contains six 22” portrait boxes and three overlapping dry-mounted images on a maple laminate center panel. The wordsAlbany Memorial Hospital appear in an arched crown, bridging the center section. Under the portraits, donor names and contribution societies are listed.
