We took on the “Come Leave Your Mark” charitable initiative in partnership with The Aladina Foundation to help refurbish the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and Paediatric Areas of the San Carlos Hospital in Madrid.
The new paediatric ICU was launched last week in an event that included the Deputy Health Minister of Madrid, José Soto; Paco Arango, President of the Aladina Foundation; Herbert Nindl, our Regional Director for Southern Europe and the artist Okuda San Miguel.
As part of this charitable project, we donated and installed the decorative laminate that has been used as wall panelling, as well as part of the furniture surfaces in the remodelled area. Here, the stars of the show are the two spectacular 45 meter square murals that were designed by Okuda San Miguel and digitally printed on to our Younique® laminate panels.
The bespoke designs, printed on laminate surfaces, contain the geometric structures and multi-coloured prints that are so characteristic of Okuda, are located in the main hallway of the Paediatric ICU. This renovation has created an artistic space that patients, family members and the centre’s medical staff all enjoy. Annually, more than 1,800 patients are treated in the facilities of the Paediatric ICU as well as in the Paediatric Surgery Centre and the Child and Adolescent Institute of the Hospital Clinic San Carlos.
