The Employee Recognition and Awards Committee’s annual pumpkin painting contest brought out some bright colors and creative expression from talented Medical Center employees across several different departments. The creations range from spooky to fun—there’s even, a Jurassic-sized pumpkin that has swept the competition.

The pumpkin painting contest is a fun way to bring departments together and tap into their creativity. It also gives joy with a rainbow of color to the lobby as patients, visitors, and staff can enjoy the patch of pumpkins through the month of October. Prizes are awarded for three of the creations. Prizes include fall-themed gift baskets, baking supplies, and a warm beverage cart service.
