Martin led Gritman for eleven years, guiding its transition from a rural hospital to a contemporary medical center before he died tragically in 2010.
Construction starts next month on the Jeff Martin Memorial Garden. It will include three wind sculptures designed by Lyman Whitaker, one of Martin’s favorite artists, and a tranquil space.
says, “We wanted to actually create the sense of entry, the sense of a place that remembers Jeff, remembers his contributions, remembers his qualities but it also inspires people,” said Rula Awwad-Rafferty, design director.
Until September 12th you can donate to the Gritman Foundation for a personalized brick or plaque in the memorial.
The garden’s concept will be unveiled to the public during a free breakfast at the Gritman Conference Center tomorrow morning from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Everyone is invited.
