Jonas Wood: Children’s National Hospital PICU

RxArt is thrilled to have worked with Jonas Wood on privacy curtains for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C. Wood has designed curtains that offer a playful space for the imagination to run wild. We are honored to bring these whimsical, bright designs by such a wonderful artist to a place that really needs them. In the crowded, impersonal space of any hospital, privacy curtains often provide the only available respite. Wood’s drawings have the power to transport, to divert and to create a new experience within a space full of uncertainty. This is the first time that RxART has collaborated with an artist to produce privacy curtains.

Children’s National Hospital opened its doors in 1870. Today it is ranked among the top 10 pediatric hospitals in the country. Children’s National is #1 for babies for a third consecutive year and is ranked in every specialty evaluated by the U.S. News and World Report, including placement in the top 10 for: Neurology and Neurosurgery (#5), Nephrology (#6), Cancer (#9), and Pulmonology (#9). The pediatric health system has been designated two times as a Magnet hospital, a designation given to hospitals that demonstrate the highest standards of nursing and patient care.

The project is generously underwritten by the Eliza Moore Fund for RxArt. Additional thanks to Julius and May Schwartz Charitable Fund. For more information on RxART projects and how to support them, please contact Megan Skidmore at 212-260-8797 or, or click the red “Support This Project” button.
