Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital: Gratitude Graffiti

“I’m thankful for my good health.”

“I’m thankful for my Jennie family.”

“I’m grateful for life itself.”


Windows at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital are covered in color as employees and visitors show their gratitude with graffiti. Hospital guests are invited to grab markers and write notes at the “Gratitude Stop,” located between Registration and the Gift Shop. Visitors show their appreciation through the Gratitude Graffiti Project.

“It’s an opportunity for people to be able to express themselves and to be able to put their thanks into words,” said Michelle Kaufman, MS, RT (R,T), director of oncology services at the hospital. “The whole attitude of gratitude among our Jennie family is definitely in our culture, and we feel it every single day.”

The Gratitude Graffiti Project is a 30-day, purposeful appreciation of one’s life through public, interactive art in our community. The display will remain open through the end of November.
