New Rush Clinic Showcases Chicago Photography

To decorate its new clinic at Rush, the Section of Colon and Rectal Surgery held a contest asking people to submit photos representing the Chicago area to help decorate the new space.

“We hoped to create a clinic space that was warm and welcoming, comforting and interesting, while being efficient and functional,” says section chief Bruce Orkin, MD.

After receiving more than 250 submissions from a broad range of people, including doctors at Rush, nurses, students, researchers and family members, a panel of judges selected 45 photos to be displayed in the new space, which opened in January.

“Once matted, framed and hung,” Orkin writes in the introduction to a book featuring many of the photos, “they transformed the suite into a vibrant gallery of artwork.”
