A new logo for Mount St. Mary Hospital

Over the past year, staff, our Board, the Sisters of St. Ann, and the Marie Esther Society members have worked together to update Mount St. Mary Hospital’s brand. We are grateful for everyone’s involvement and to Heather Kohler who volunteered her time to design a fantastic new logo for Mount St. Mary Hospital which has been enthusiastically approved by residents, families, and our staff.

A modernization of our current logo, Mount St. Mary Hospital’s new logo is based on a circle. 

In many cultures, a circle is associated with inclusion, wholeness, and nurturing. With no beginning or end, the circle represents MSMH’s commitment to the frail, elderly and vulnerable. The four quarters within the circle symbolize the seasons of life—birth, childhood, adulthood, and death.  

The rectangle behind the four quarters reveals the strength of MSMH’s foundation. It is a building block which supports the balance of body and health with spirit and hope for those we care with compassion. When the quarters inside the circle and rectangle are viewed together, a cross is formed. The cross recognizes our Catholic roots and our founders, the Sisters of St. Ann. The cross is also a symbol of love and invites the observer to embrace its sacredness and healing power.  

The bright blue is a “Mary Blue” in honour of our namesake. The other blues reflect the peace and serenity inherent in the waters of the Salish Sea, steps from our Home. The modern font highlights our competence and MSMH’s commitment to excellence and innovation. It is a strong font that also communicates the value MSMH places on fairness, justice, responsibility and accountability to our residents, their families, our staff, and our community.
