The art in the H-building consists of 9 commissioned works, which vary from ceramics to wall paintings, photographic prints, and deposited works from the collection of collector Pekka Lind. Art projects have been prepared during the years 2021–2022. In the main entrance hall, there is a large sculpture made of ceramics, glass and steel by Teija and Pekka Isorättyä, which is titled Exuvia - a work that depicts the hatching of a red-eyed damselfly from the nymph stage into a damselfly.
From the 2021 open call for photography, a total of 33 photographs were selected – at least one from each municipality in the municipal association. Some of the photographs have been placed on the walls of the hospital as photo wallpapers and some as large photo boards.
Vaasa Central Hospital’s H-building art committee, which is responsible for the selection of the artists and the art, includes the chair of the art committee Monica Siren-Aura, the technical director of the Wellbeing Services County of Ostrobothnia Ulf Stenbacka, administrative director Juha Post (until the end of 2021), design engineer Sanna Ahola, and architect Elina Salakari of Kontukoski Architects Ltd.
Art expertise is represented by Aki Koskinen, a representative of the Vaasa Artists’ Guild appointed to the art working group, and Heini Orell from Frei Zimmer Oy, who acts as the art coordinator of the project.
