Seattle Children’s LED Video Walls Improve Visitor and Staff Experience
The Odessa Brown Children's Clinic (OBCC), part of the Seattle Children's health care network, added three interior LED video walls to enhance the clinic’s atmosphere and promote the hospital’s mission. The OBCC, named after health care activist Odessa Brown, is a donor-funded clinic with the mission of delivering wholistic health care to underserved families in a low-income neighborhood of Seattle’s Rainer Valley. Upon installation of the digital displays, the clinic started showing calming biophilic content created by digital art and brand specialist cFire.

By beautifying the space with LED-based artwork, we can make visitors feel more at home and provide meaningful content that makes people stop and pay attention. We've seen a positive reaction from staff and visitors. Folks love the screens.
- Ryan Elwell, Seattle Children's Hospital
"Our goal is to plant the seeds of hope for children who have learned to associate hospitals with pain," said Ryan Elwell, IT manager for Seattle Children's. "By beautifying the space with LED-based artwork, we can make visitors feel more at home and provide meaningful content that makes people stop and pay attention. We've seen a positive reaction from staff and visitors. Folks love the screens.”
The largest of the three screens is a lobby video wall and the other two are spread throughout the facility. The lobby display is a BOLD™ Interior LED display with a 2.5 mm pixel pitch that can be seen through the 30-foot glass building façade from Martin Luther King, Jr. Way and by riders on Seattle's light rail system. The display is 8'10" X 11'10" and has a resolution of 1,080 x 1,440 pixels.
The other two screens are BRILLIANT™ Interior LED displays that feature 1.8 mm pixel spacing. The pair of vertically oriented displays are 6'8" x 3'11"and have a resolution of 1,080 by 640 pixels. One is located in the waiting room of the facility's dental hygiene center and the other is in the behavioral health and rehabilitation clinic.
