Request for Proposal Framing for Sioux Center Community Hospital & Health Center Avera New Hospital and Medical Clinic Facility

Sioux Center Community Hospital & Health Center Avera is in the process of building a new hospital and medical clinic in Sioux Center, IA.  SCCH & HC is searching for appropriate artwork for the facility in prominent locations in the public lobby, clinical areas and hospital units.  The facility is scheduled to open in early spring, 2014.

Mission and Vision

The development of the new hospital and medical clinic is in keeping with their mission to bring hope, health and healing to life.  As a Christian-based health ministry, they seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus’ healing ministry.

Scope of Building

The new facility will be home to a number of entities dedicated to providing state-of-the-art care.  The main public area will be a large “Town Center” enhanced with skylights, a master staircase, and a unique glass element.  Public gathering areas are also incorporated within it.  The building will also house physician clinic spaces.

Art Location

The intent of this RFP is to obtain framing that will enhance the selected artwork.  SCCH & HC is open to all different artistic mediums which may require multiple framing techniques.  Original pieces and images are to be within a 24”-48” scope in height and width.  Because of this, SCCH & HC are asking for a budget number based on a 24”x36” piece.  Attached is an artist rendering of the facility, both the interior and exterior views.  SCCH & HC’s Art Committee will give the final direction of placement of all submittals.

Team Approach

Sioux Center Community Hospital & Health Center Avera realizes that because of the size of the RFP, the timelines and the mix of artistic mediums, a team approach may be desired.  If a team approach is proposed, each team should respond with a leader, who will be the main contact for the team.  If a team approach is proposed, all contracts, invoicing, scheduling, etc will be the responsibility of the team leader.
