Saint Elizabeth Health Care Showcases Hope And Happiness
MARKHAM, Ontario, July 26, 2016 /Canada NewsWire/ - Saint Elizabeth today announced the official opening of a Hope and Happiness showcase at its corporate office in Markham.
Bringing together elements of strategy, storytelling and experiential design, the 2,000-square foot installation was designed and produced in partnership with Central Station, a Toronto-based agency that specializes in bringing brands to life. An accompanying video shows the creation and build out of the space.
"As a not-for-profit charity, we connect with so many people nationally and internationally who want to visit, learn and share ideas with us," said Shirlee Sharkey, CEO of Saint Elizabeth. "With the recent expansion of our corporate office, we wanted to capture – in a surprising and inspiring way – our passion and uniqueness within the healthcare ecosystem."
The inaugural showcase features some of Saint Elizabeth's most powerful and innovative initiatives, including Elizz, Canada's go-to-place for all things caregiving, and the award-winning Hope and Happiness campaign that is inspiring a global movement.
As the finishing touches are put in place, guided tours of the showcase are already being provided to a growing number of health systems, community groups, students, entrepreneurs and others interested in innovating health care.
Earlier this month, nearly 120 staff convened in the new space and online to mark their graduation from the UK's School for Health and Care Radicals, a virtual learning program for change activists, backed by the National Health Service.
"After more than a century of caring, we continue to be inspired by the power of people, and all the ways we can work together to be a catalyst for positive change," said Sharkey.
