Our Stained Glass Windows

        Many of you comment on the beautiful stained glass windows in our hospital. We asked Dr Steve about their history and this is what he said: “Stained glass has always been one of my favorite art forms. I really wanted a pet-themed piece to accent the hospital. I went to South Mountain Stained Glass to get a design. He gave me some very elegant southwest inspired designs that were beautiful but not what I felt was in the spirit of my vision. They would have looked great in a financial building or elegant home but not the hospital. I drew a simple design and I explained to him my whimsical animal inspired theme with the sun & moon and he redesigned from that. He did an excellent job! Also, I can’t take credit for the amazing side windows around the door; they were designed by an intern at Partners’ Design.”
