Customer Appreciation: Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland

March 4, 2013

Children's Hospital & Research Center in Oakland, Calif., is the only independent children's hospital in Northern California and one of only 45 freestanding children's hospitals in the country. From thank-you cards for its 100-year anniversary or large-format brochures explaining the services, Children's Hospital & Research Center has been printing with PsPrint since 2006. Almost all of the Children Hospital's printed materials feature its colorful logo of children holding hands, as you can see on this pocket folder for its Emergency Services department.

One of the other logos of the Children's Hospital is the little yellow ducky, inspired by the famous Rubber Ducky Derby, a very popular fundraiser for the hospital. The rubber ducky is featured prominently in this postcard for Hospital Week.

I love the "holding hands" logo, and the duck is a nice touch for kid-friendly literature. It's amazing the organization has been around for more than 100 years!
