Memorial Photographers Capture 2016 in 12 Poignant Images

Life happens in the patient rooms and hallways of our hospitals and clinics, in the events we sponsor and the causes we champion. Life happens in the connections between our employees and patients and their families. In 2016, our photographers shot thousands of images that captured Memorial’s mission – to improve the health of the people and communities we serve. The following twelve photographs represent some of their favorite work – and ours – in 2016. Enjoy.
