ERMC displays local art, chooses healing subjects

Eaton Rapids Medical Center (ERMC) has recently partnered with local artist and photographer Ted Myers to hang over 40 pieces of nature-centered art on the walls of the hospital. The large, framed and matted pieces include scenes of the Great Lakes, images of wildlife, and expansive shots of sunsets and night skies. While the natural beauty of Michigan was the inspiration for these photos, the goal at the forefront of this project was to provide calm, healing environments for patients, families, and staff.

“I have enjoyed sharing my images exhibiting the beauty and wonder of the outdoors by creating DVD stories, conducting seminars, and displaying framed prints,” said Myers. “However, this project with Eaton Rapids Medical Center is the pinnacle because it adds an element of therapy.”

Ted has been following his passion for photography since his retirement and recently presented to the local Rotary Club, which meets every Wednesday at ERMC, where members of hospital leadership were able to see his work.

“His passion for the impact and value of nature-based art in patient care settings made him a perfect fit for the project,” said ERMC President & CEO Tim Johnson. “We are thrilled to be able to partner with him to make our facility an even more inviting place.”
