Local video and photography company, FlatWorld Productions, donated their time and talents to create a new, High Definition "Welcome" video for Magee Rehabilitation Hospital.

The video highlights Magee's various therapy programs (speech, occupational, physical, art, horticultural, recreational) cutting-edge technology, sports programs and some of Magee's new improvements such as the brand new dining area and dialysis center.

"This new video has a multitude of uses," said Magee's Director of Public Relations, Kerry O'Connor."It will run on the televisions in patients' rooms so they can get an idea of all the services that are available to them. It will run on our website, giving those who are interested in learning more about Magee an informative and engaging virtual tour. It will also be used by staff when meeting with potential patients and their families and by our staff who are often asked to present at various forums and symposiums all over the world." 

Flatworld Productions has worked with Magee several times in the past, helping to create everything from a video that shares the reasons why employees chose to work at Magee to a video that Magee was asked to create by the U.S. Army to be used in Iraqi civilian rehabilitation facilities to demonstrate proper wheelchair use.

"We also take advantage of Flatworld's photography services," said O'Connor. "They donate a lot of their services to us regarding the video work, but I hire them to photograph all of our special events and fundraisers. Their generosity is only matched by their talents."
