Van Wert Health Announces Open Call for Photos

Van Wert Health is pleased to announce an open call for photos to be considered for decorating the newest areas of Van Wert Health - Hospital, which is currently being constructed.  The open call is for anyone in the northwest Ohio and northeast Indiana region, professional or amateur, with no age restrictions.  When patients, family members, and visitors enter through our doors, we want them to feel welcomed in our new space, and your special photos will be an integral part of that.

Photograph submissions may be of any subject, including but not limited to the landscape of our county, photos of special milestones in your life, or of the people who have shaped who you are today.  Photos may be new or old (as long as they meet the requirements outlined below). 

We are building the new Surgery and Inpatient Expansion Project at Van Wert Health for you, the community, and we want your photos to be one more way for you to be part of the region’s newest, state-of-the-art facility.
