Choctaw Nation Health System
Skyline Art Services focused on creating energized, healing spaces that honored Choctaw culture in a compelling way. The walls became central to the design because of their experience with extraordinary wear and tear. Exercise equipment, rehab machines, weights, children’s toys, and hands and feet routinely test the walls’ durability. Without jeopardizing this strength, administrators also wanted to incorporate bright colors and imagery into the space to reinvigorate the room.
Each facility’s walls were graphically tailored to fit the layout of each space by utilizing Acrovyn by Design’s unlimited visual possibilities. Doorways, windows, wall heights, and equipment were transformed to reflect the community’s culture and delight the patients within each clinic. Acrovyn by Design was also used in the rehabilitation center’s physical therapy space to create a window film mosaic, portraying bright colors, water and movement. The wellness center featured high definition images of athletes in motion to inspire exercise. Acrovyn by Design’s cleanability and ease of maintenance was essential for the CrossFit style gym walls, allowing the surface areas to meet the Joint Commission’s cleanliness standards.
“Our patients, whether in the rehab center or small children in pediatrics, are constantly putting their hands and feet against the walls in our clinics, which leads to constant chipping and repainting,” said K. Halann Elliott of Choctaw Nation Health Services Authority. “We needed a solution that would provide long-term durability, while incorporating our culture into the space. Now when you walk into the physical therapy space and see the Acrovyn by Design window film, it sparkles. This creates a happy, healthy and healing atmosphere for our patients.”

PARTNERING TO CREATE CUTTING EDGE SOLUTIONS
The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma became the first Native American tribe to build its own hospital in 1999. While the Choctaw Nation Health Care Center is its hub, Choctaw Nation Health Services extend well beyond the hospital to clinics and health centers in more than 10 counties of southeastern Oklahoma.
