As one of the country’s first physical rehabilitation facilities, Helen Hayes Hospital is widely recognized as a leader in rehabilitation medicine and research. MERJE worked with the hospital to create a series of landmark exhibits throughout the 105-acre campus. The exhibits reinforce the hospital’s brand message (“The Power of Rehabilitation”), highlight patient achievements and tell the history of the facility. The exhibits utilize images and words to offer encouragement and positive reinforcement, a historic timeline illustrates the progress of the facility and its patients over the years, and the hospital’s main lobby features an exhibit dedicated to Helen Hayes MacArthur. Mrs MacArthur was known as the First Lady of the American Theater and endowed the hospital with not only her name, but her enduring spirit and legacy of hope.
