May 16, 2017

Local artist Jonathan Matteson recently donated to Pullman Regional Hospital his series of paintings called “Biomes,” which are on display in the Emergency Department. Dr. Pete Mikkelsen, Medical Director of Emergency Services, said “They add a great aesthetic to our remodeled spaces in the Emergency Department and we are grateful to Jonathan for his generosity in sharing his work with patients and staff.”

Matteson said he was inspired to paint the series by his son who was studying Biomes in middle school.

“I believe that abstract art of this kind is helpful and relatable to the heightened awareness of both staff and patients in emergency situations,” he said.
