In January, 2010, St Mary’s Hospital & Medical Center opened the Century Tower, a 12 Story, 434,000 square foot addition to the hospital at its 7th and Patterson location. Atop the roof of the Century Tower is the Care Flight Heliport. Century Project planning ensured that expansion would be possible. St Mary’s is taking the final step, finishing Floors 9 and 10 – Floor 9 for Neuro-Trauma Services and Floor 10 for Acute Medical Care. Each floor comprises approximately 29,000 square feet of space with 32 patient rooms on each floor. Construction of the project is underway and is scheduled for completion in July, 2016.
Artwork has always played an important part in St Mary’s healing environments. Calming, uplifting, and healing images, providing color, value, and light to physical space contribute to the healing process and to an environment in which comfort and care can best occur. St Mary’s collection of artwork is proudly displayed in the original hospital and its many additions. In keeping with that healing art tradition, St Mary’s Century Tower, when complete, will display over 1,200 pieces of 2D and 3D art from more than 600 Colorado artists.
An open competition of Colorado artists was held through a partnership with the Western Colorado Center for the Arts and St Mary’s Hospital. Paintings selected for inclusion in the St Mary’s healing environment were announced today. My painting, “Spring Passage,” was one of the painting selected. This painting was originally introduced on June 27, 2015 in the blog post, Update to Demo: MVAG and WCCC.
