LCHC Hosting Photo and Art Contest

To promote health and wellness, Lucas County Health Center is inviting photographers and artists from the area to submit images to decorate patient rooms in the Med/Surg department.

Studies show that art positively impacts both individual and community wellness. It plays a pivotal role by transforming often sterile and clinical environments into more comforting and welcoming spaces, which is beneficial to patients, their families, and healthcare professionals. These positive effects not only enhance the overall well-being of patients but can also lead to quicker recovery times and reduced hospital stays.

The contest is open to individuals of all ages and skill levels who reside in the state of Iowa. Submissions will be accepted through November 30, 2023 and should reflect Lucas County or Iowa in some capacity.

Winners will receive a $50 gift card and will have their photos displayed in a patient room with a plaque that includes their name.
