History of the UVA Health System Exhibit

Exhibit PanelOne of the Health Sciences Library’s permanent exhibits recently received some much needed love and care. Since 2001, the exhibit “Celebrating 100 Years. A Legacy of Care. A Framework for the Future.” has hung in a heavily-used corridor near the hospital’s main cafeteria. The exhibit tells the history of the University of Virginia Health System and features historic images from the library’s collections.

At the beginning of 2014, it was clear that the exhibit panels, which had yellowed and faded after 13 years of permanent display, needed to be replaced. Also, it was clear that the exhibit needed to be updated with a new panel that tells the history of the health system in the 21st century. Over a period of several months, members of the library’s Historical Collections department, Janet Pearson and Joan Echtenkamp Klein, worked on this project with the Health System’s Marketing Communications Department and Gropen Inc.

The refreshed and updated exhibit now hangs near the main cafeteria. If you are ever in that vicinity, make sure to visit it and learn more about the rich history of the UVA Health System.
