NMC’s Art Wall to Creatively Honor Donors

NMC looks forward to this spring’s unveiling of a large work of art dedicated to donors of Exceptional … the Campaign for Northwestern Medical Center, featured in the new Medical Clinics Building .

The twenty-foot long art wall features fused glass panels depicting the mountains and lake with the landscape’s many seasons expressed in colorful – and meaningful – ways.

Artist Caroline Parent was commissioned to create the work. “The NMC Family of caregivers supports the community in all seasons of life. This work of art will be a creative expression to honor that,” says Parent. “This work is inspired by the Vermont landscape, waters of Lake Champlain and the community of caring people, families and businesses who are dedicated to the continued growth and high quality service that NMC provides.”

Each donor who contributed $1,000 or more to the campaign will have their name etched on a piece of the artwork, which is prominently featured at the entrance of the new clinics building.

The capital campaign is just $130,000 shy of reaching its ambitious $2.5 million goal, an outstanding indicator of the strong community support for the hospital. The campaign helps support NMC during a critical time. NMC’s vision is to enhance the quality of care provided as well as the patient experience while reducing costs by investing in more efficient models of care. The expansion provides greater privacy, easier access and improved efficiencies across the spectrum of services.

“We must embrace that how we deliver healthcare and how we are reimbursed is changing,” said Leon Berthiaume, Vice President of NMC’s Board of Directors and CEO of the Co-Operative Creamery.  “We need to ensure that we can maintain one of the most important assets of our community for future generations.  That is one of the many reasons I am willing to assist with the capital campaign in addition to my family being well served by our NMC team.”
