Special Art Pieces Donated To Memorial Hospital Psychiatric Services Department
Specialized art pieces are now on permanent display in the Lake Charles Memorial Hospital Inpatient Psychiatric Unit, thanks to the owners of Signs Now, a local company specializing in computer-designed signs, and Dale Archer, M.D., local psychiatrist with the Institute for Neuropsychiatry and member of the Memorial Hospital Medical Staff.
The art project, valued at over $3,000, features seven panels of gorgeous scenic photography. The pieces are made of vinyl and look as though they are professionally framed. The project is part of the hospital’s Art for the Soul program.
“Before now, due to safety precautions, we were unable to place framed art pieces within the inpatient psychiatric patient care area,” says Leif Pedersen, Senior Vice President of Philanthropy. “Signs Now, along with Dr. Dale Archer, came up with a secure and harmless alternative. Thanks to their generous contributions and hard work, this project is now a reality.”
