After a successful run that spanned five decades, the final Impact was published in January 2020.  Impact was UTMB Health’s employee newsletter. It evolved from a one color printed tabloid newspaper to a full color magazine with a digital component. We’ve archived the past several years on these pages for your review and enjoyment.


Fine art is good medicine.

Evidence shows art is an important component of a healing environment. The new Jennie Sealy Hospital features more than 1,000 pieces of art exuding a calming, coastal vibe. The art decorating the interior of the hospital comes from dozens of artists—about half of whom are from the Houston and Galveston area—and includes paintings, photographs and larger installation pieces. The art even matches the views from the patient rooms. On the Gulf of Mexico side of the building, you’ll see images of beach scenes and on the Galveston Bay-facing side, you’ll see illustrations of ships and wharves.
