Hospital staff, volunteers, chaplains and the construction team were invited to celebrate the formal opening of the space. The SRMC chapel offers a quiet place for everyone at the hospital to go and gather their thoughts.

“We want our chapel to be a peaceful, quiet place for everyone, no matter their denomination or faith tradition, to come and pray, meditate or simply just sit and reflect,” said Gerald Jones, SRMC director of pastoral care. “We are very excited to have such a beautiful piece of art incorporated into our new space to welcome everyone.”

Needham, a Chico native, operates Needham Studios with his two sons and was selected to create the piece through a national search. Throughout his 45-year career, the studio has produced glass for numerous area churches and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company’s restaurant in Chico, to name a few.

“It’s rewarding to be able to create a dynamic piece that helps provide peace and calm for people who may be having a hard time,” said Needham. “I was simply inspired by the local landscape as I walked with Gerald and discussed the project.”
