Call for Artists: Einstein Medical Center Montgomery

November 14, 2011 in for artists, opportunities by Stephanie Yuhas

Einstein Medical Center Montgomery is a 363,000 square foot facility under construction in East Norriton, PA. When complete, EMCM will offer advanced healthcare services in a modern, digitally sophisticated hospital. The building is scheduled to open in September 2012. Artwork is an important part of the environment of the new hospital and the hospital also has a strong desire to recognize its roots in Central Montgomery County.
