Eisai Donates More Than 80 Murals to Hospitals Around the United States
Date:11/11/2009

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Eisai Inc. today announced that it has donated more than 80 pieces of artwork, created by its employees, to hospitals across the United States.

The multi-panel murals were created by more than 1,200 of Eisai's field employees at a "PaintFest" team building event this summer. The event was conducted with the assistance of the Foundation for Hospital Art, which helps companies and organizations create artwork for donation to hospitals. The Foundation provided Eisai with canvasses with the painting templates, instructions and the assistance of professional artists to help participants - many of whom had never painted before - through the process.

Employee activities such as PaintFest fulfill a key tenet of Eisai's human health care mission, which is to give first thought to patients and their families and to increasing the benefits that healthcare provides. Such activities enable employees to connect with the needs of patients and families in an impactful way.

"This was an amazing experience for all at Eisai who participated in PaintFest," said Cynthia Schwalm, President, U.S. Pharmaceuticals, Eisai Inc. "It served as a reminder to each of us what patients and their families go through when they are facing a health issue that has put them in a hospital setting. That something as seemingly simple as a piece of art can really help to alleviate pain, discomfort or anxiety impresses upon us what patients and their families go through, and reminds us how important it is for us to do all we can to help improve the lives of patients and their families."

The Foundation for Hospital Art (www.hospitalart.org) has worked with various volunteers and partners to donate more than 35,000 paintings to more than 2,000 hospitals worldwide since the organization was founded in 1984.

"We were thrilled for the opportunity to work with Eisai in our continued effort to offer comfort to hospital patients," said John Feight, founder and Executive Director of The Foundation for Hospital Art. "It is especially rewarding to work with partners like Eisai, who truly understand the needs of patients and their families, and are dedicated to actively seeking ways to improve the their lives."

Eisai is proud to have the artwork created by its employees on display at a variety of hospitals around the country, including the following:

         Children's Hospital (New Orleans, Louisiana)
         Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
         Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)
         Hoboken University Medical Center (Hoboken, New Jersey)

         Methodist Children's Hospital (San Antonio, Texas)
