SOMC X-ray Rooms Turn Tropical

The X-ray rooms in the Emergency Department at Southern Ohio Medical Center recently received a facelift with the help of local mural artist Cindy Gibson of South Webster. The two windowless rooms were painted in tropical themes with palm trees and beach scenes in one and the underwater ocean world in the other. The imagery is designed to help ease anxiety for the patient, especially children, and soften the clinical appearance of the rooms. Gibson also provided images of riverboats and trains for two X-ray rooms in the Medical Imaging Department at the hospital.
