The hospital members were recognized for working with District 70 art students to provide a variety of temporary artwork to hang on patient doors and in rooms throughout the hospital, including the newest "tower" area and ICU. Art teacher Cindi Sartain nominated the hospital members for the award.

Last year, the hospital also worked with District 70 to create a permanent gallery of student artwork in the hospital lobby.
