Atlanta (June 27) LAWFUEL — Kilpatrick Stockton announced today that it recently donated a mural to Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC), one of the nation’s leading healthcare deliverers. The mural, which depicts a sea of colorful fish, was one of several painted by Kilpatrick Stockton attorneys, staff and their families earlier this year to be given to health care organizations. A second mural will be presented to Hope Lodge in Charleston, South Carolina which is operated by the American Cancer Society and provides free lodging for families with loved ones receiving cancer treatment.
David Zacks, Kilpatrick Stockton Partner and former Chair of the American Cancer Society, presented the mural to members of Tenet’s senior management in a ceremony at Tenet’s corporate offices in Dallas. The mural will be displayed in a Tenet hospital later this year.
“We hope this mural can help lift the spirits of patients, families and caregivers when they are receiving outstanding care at a Tenet hospital and be a small part of the positive impact Tenet makes every single day,” said David Zacks, Kilpatrick Stockton Partner who presented the mural. “Kilpatrick Stockton is proud to be associated with an organization like Tenet which is making a difference in the lives of the thousands of patients and communities they serve.”
Kilpatrick Stockton’s innovative IMPACT initiative, which coordinates the firm’s community leadership, volunteer and pro bono efforts, invited John Feight — Founder of the Foundation for Hospital Art — to speak at the firm to offer inspiration for this project. Through his leadership over 300,000 volunteers and patients have united to create more than 30,000 pieces of colorful, soothing artwork to help soften the often stressful hospital experience. The artwork is displayed in 1500 hospitals in nearly 180 countries worldwide.
