Hardin Memorial Health is asking the community to submit nature/outdoor, from all four seasons, themed photographs to be featured in the private patient rooms and waiting areas on the third and fourth floor of the new North Tower currently under construction.

The architectural rendering of the North Tower’s patient room illustrates just one way the photos will be used as the main artistic focal point in both patient and family spaces. We estimate that we will need 130 photos to complete this project.

Current scientific research indicates that images that trigger thoughts of happy times in nature, or peaceful scenes can transport patients and family members mentally to a comforting
environment which can aid in the healing process and help improve patient outcomes.

Call for entries: August 19 – November 30, 2013
Photo files must be no smaller than 1MB and shot at 300dpi (high resolution photos)
Photos must include the photographers name in the file name and will only be accepted in a digital format via Email, CD or DVD or flash drive. All photo entries must have a completed
consent form. Download Consent Form

Please scan and submit this completed release form (each entry) to: or mail entries to: Director, Marketing & Public Relations, Hardin Memorial Hospital, 913 N. Dixie Ave, Elizabethtown, KY 42701. For Questions please call (270) 706-1017 or email

Throughout the Call for Entries, we will keep the community up-to-date with updates on the number of photos collected and showcasing entries both on Hardin Memorial Health’s Facebook page and website. After the entry period has ended, a preliminary selection of photos will be featured on the HMH Facebook page for community feedback.

Final photos will be selected based on comments from Facebook and an internal committee’s selection process. We estimate the North Tower will be completed 18 months to 2 years. We hope that the photographers whose photos were selected will be able to attend the Grand Opening/Open House Event for the North Tower. This special group of photographers will be recognized for their photography work and donation of their photos to the décor of the new Hardin Memorial Hospital North Tower.
