Children’s hospital photos selected for national exhibit

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Two photographs depicting patient care at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital have been selected for inclusion in a national photography exhibition highlighting children’s hospitals. The Upstate photos will appear in “Champions,” sponsored by the 2011 National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI) Children’s Hospitals, that features 50 photographs chosen from nearly 250 submissions from across the country.

The exhibit will be unveiled at NACHRI’s spring conference in Baltimore March 13 to 16 and is expected to be on display at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital in April.

One selected photograph depicts an Upstate practitioner, Dr. Priyanka Kaul, M.D., administering care to a young patient. This photograph also received special recognition as a “top-10” photo from all of the submissions. This photograph was taken by Susan Khan, of Chittenango. This is the second time Kahn’s photography has been selected for the NACHRI exhibition. In 2007, her portrait of a burn patient won first place in that year’s exhibition.

The other Upstate photograph in the exhibit portrays Richard Cantor, M.D., examining 3-year-old patient in Upstate’s pediatric emergency room. The photo was taken by Robert Mescavage of Marcellus.

“These photographs depicting Dr. Kaul and Dr. Cantor caring for their patients stood out for their composition, quality, fit with the exhibit theme and the stories they tell,” said Sallie Strang, exhibit curator and NACHRI communications director.

Strang said the purpose of the NACHRI Children’s Hospital Photo Exhibit is to serve as a powerful reminder to viewers that all children need children’s hospitals. She noted that the photographs selected for the exhibit portray the importance of a children’s hospital within a community, and exemplify the exceptional care given at children’s hospitals.

The 2011 exhibit will travel across the country and will be on display July 25 to 29 on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.

NACHRI is a not-for-profit organization of children’s hospitals with 218 member hospitals throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Italy, China, Mexico and Puerto Rico. NACHRI supports children’s hospitals and health systems that are committed to excellence in providing health care to children.
