A New Name for Children’s Hospital of Michigan

Like many hospitals, Children’s Hospital of Michigan belongs to a larger hospital network that includes nine other sites throughout the area. So when thinking of ways to freshen up their exhibit as well as increase participation, longtime venue coordinator Grace Serra made the logical leap of giving the employees from these other hospital locations the opportunity to join the program. The addition of thousands of employees and family members from the nine sites seemed a little overwhelming, so Grace decided to start the expansion process slowly by including just two of the nine sites.
 
With the addition of Harper University Hospital and Hutzel Women’s Hospital as well as the plans to include all nine sites in the future, the show needed a more encompassing name. The NAP Detroit Medical Center Art Exhibit was born.
 
Along with these changes, came the highest number of participants in the history of their exhibit, almost double the amount from last year alone! We applaud Grace for all her hard work to expand the Seventh Annual National Arts Program® Exhibition and look forward to continued growth in the future.
