Nancy Witherell Art Selected To Design Art Program for Sutter Health Women’s Breast Care Center and Radiology Lounge, Santa Rosa, California
Nancy Witherell Art has been selected by Sutter Pacific Medical Center to design the art program for Sutter’s newly upgraded Breast Care Center and Radiology Lounge in Santa Rosa, California. The state of the art center is scheduled to open October 2013 and will feature 32 pieces of art curated by Nancy Witherell, principal of Nancy Witherell Art (NWA).
Located in the Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation North Bay Health Plaza, the 13,000 square foot facility features over $1.2 million in new technology and site improvements. Located at 3883 Airway Drive in Santa Rosa, the site offers comprehensive healthcare services and the upgraded Breast Care Center and Radiology Lounge will serve patients with a host of new technologies including a 3-D mammography unit, the only one of its kind in Sonoma County.
The art program featured in the center will be designed to help provide comfort to visitors of the center. NWA designed, planned and installed the 32 pieces of artwork including eight custom pieces designed for the space. The facility’s new MRI room is equipped with a “caring suite” that uses personalized lighting, music and video designed to help patients feel more comfortable. While sharing equipment with the new adjacent Advanced Imaging Center, the Breast Care Center was specially designed to maximize patient privacy with a separate waiting room, lounge and a private dressing room, all featuring relaxing and reassuring art placed by NWA.
“My goal for the Breast Center and Radiology Lounge was to provide women with a comfortable, soothing, and private feeling.” says Nancy Witherell.
