The Hadley Art Collection includes over 408 works of art including paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics, sculptures, and fabric by principle Kansas artists. Currently, there are works from 168 artists which includes sixteen Governor's Artists Award winners represented in the Collection. The collecting of original works of art began in 1974 at the Hadley Regional Medical Center and has continued since the merger with St. Anthony Hospital in 1991, which formed the Hays Medical Center. Funding for this wonderful collection of art has come primarily from the Hadley Foundation as well as Hays Medical Center Volunteers funded the Meditation Garden and the Ross Foundation funded the mobile in the Miller Medical Pavilion lobby. The collection is located in the various public areas of the hospital and may be viewed utilizing a self-guided brochure. Guided tours may be arranged upon advance request by calling 785-623-5890.
