Mercy Research recently received a donation of photographs from The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals. The photographs will be hung in 11 Mercy Research offices across Mercy. Photographer Elaine Poggi created the foundation after witnessing the healing impact of art in her mother’s hospital room during a battle with cancer. Its mission is to foster healing environments in health care settings through soothing nature photographs.
"We're excited to display these images in our research offices," said JoAnne Levy, Mercy Research vice president. "This initiative aligns with Mercy’s dedication to patient-centered care and enhances the well-being of both our patients and co-workers. It's an exciting step towards using art as a tool for healing and fostering a positive atmosphere."
