Public Area Posting Guidelines
Environmental Services provides a limited supply of easels for public-area poster displays that promote participation in hospital-sponsored programs and events. Posters must be 36” by 24”, may be erected up to 10 days in advance of an event and are limited to two per event/program. They will be posted on a “first come, first served” basis. Hospital-wide events have precedence over department-specific events. Easels may be placed in the Cafeteria bridge (no more than 6 at a time), the Connors Center Lobby (3), the Cabot Atrium Lobby (3), the PBB Lobby (3) and the Bornstein Amphitheater Entrance (2). The user will be responsible for mounting poster on easel provided. Environmental Services will remove and dispose of posters at the conclusion of each event/program unless prior arrangements have been made. Postings not in compliance with the above parameters will be removed without notice. Easel requests should be e-mailed to Al Fernandes, Environmental Services Manager (email@example.com) two business days in advance. Requests should specify preferred date, time and location(s) of easel setup and contact information.
