The entrance to the operation rooms are 2 special glass sliding doors. As soon as the doors open a child slides in the arms of her mother. This visualises the comfort and security.

The theme of the artwork is care. It is called "The Inner in the Shadow". When you look in the shadow of the mother and child you can discover drawings of o.a.: a family picture, cuddly toys, a heart, birds, pillows, a Arabic life tree, flowers, the intersection of a blood vessel, virusses, molecules and a X-ray picture. The 60 pencil drawings refer to the 60 seconds in a minute and all the thoughts and feelings that can flash through your mind in a short moment of time.
Often moments when you give care or when you need care are moments of reflection. Comfort and security are important at these moments.
