Focusing on Metro Patients
When Dan Davison walked into the Childbirth Center at Metro Health Hospital, his vision for cutting-edge artwork throughout the center was already alive. The works of art that he imagined, centering on mothers, fathers and infants, would be a step away from tradition. But what an exciting step it became.
Twenty-six years of capturing treasured moments while photographing babies, families, senior portraits and young couples in his work at Douglas Photography leaves Davison well prepared to offer such a moving gift. "I’ve had this in mind for Metro for quite some time. When I showed them what I wanted to do, they just loved it," said Davison.
"We’ve never had anything like these before," said Nyla Kuperus, Clinical Coordinator of the Childbirth Center. "The framed photos really enhance our unit. They’re just amazing to see."
"The pictures are beautiful; we get many compliments on them from patients and visitors," commented Nyla Kuperus. In addition to the artwork, Davison also contributed a coffee pot to the Childbirth Center. "The visitors, especially those waiting dads, love having the coffee pot available during those long hours," said Kuperus "We appreciate all that Dan and Douglas Photography did for the Center."
The artwork gracing the walls of the Childbirth Center is just one more way that Metro Health Hospital centers its focus on patients. In this case, it’s the mothers, fathers, infants and other family members who trust Metro Health Hospital to bring new life into the world.
Summing up his motivation to donate, Davison captured the reason so many are moved to give to Metro in these words: "I like what they do there."
