River of Life

The River of Life sculpture can be found in the main hallway on the first floor of the hospital.

The lovely and graceful sculpture, “River of Life,” courses along the main hallway in the hospital in Glencoe, recognizing and celebrating the generous benefactors of the Glencoe Regional Health Services Foundation.

Why a river?
The river sculpture, designed by Dave Koechel and crafted by artist Tom Pinske of Plato, symbolizes the energy and essence of life itself. Rivers bring people together, take us into new territory, sustain and nurture surrounding land and people, and create community.

A river’s strength and dependability also symbolize, for us, our ongoing commitment to the communities we serve.
