MultiCare Health System | Tacoma, Washington

PDG created a comprehensive donor recognition system for MultiCare Health System’s new emergency and critical care facilities, including several recognition displays and two room-naming systems, one for general areas and one for pediatric areas. The design motifs, imagery, and colors for this recognition system grew from the concept of the water-basket. The recognition system weaves together three elements of deep meaning for the Tacoma region: the tradition of native baskets, the physical and symbolic importance of water, and the art of glassmaking. The three elements are reflected in the water-like imagery and color, the art glass and the basket shape of the main donor wall. These three elements—basket, water, and glass—also symbolize the coming together of many people in support of MultiCare’s mission.
