Cone Hospital is the flagship of Cone Health, a private, nonprofit network of healthcare providers.
Founded in 1953 with funds from Moses H. Cone, co-founder of Cone Mills, and his wife Bertha, the hospital has grown into a network of more than 100 locations, 12,000 employees, 1,300 doctors, and 1,200 volunteers.
Cone Health’s Office of Institutional Advancement has partnered with Michigan-based nonprofit Project SNAP to develop a community engagement program and mural on the theme of “Exceptional Care Is Our All”.
Over two years, they arranged for local students, staff, patients, caregivers, and community members to paint pictures on the subject.
Project SNAP used her to design the mural, a digital image on multiple acrylic panels.
Some artwork has been used more than once to meet the color and mosaic requirements.
SNAP stands for Share, Nurture, Act and Preserve.
Over the course of 12 years, it has created more than 50 murals in hospitals and health systems, corporations and other institutions across the country, said Deborah Rubyan, founder and chief executive officer.
These include Stanford Hospital in California, St. Louis Children’s Hospital in Missouri, Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas, Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge, Martin Luther King Mural in North Lawndale, Illinois, and the Henry Ford Mural at Ford Motor Company world headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan.
