The Daly Hospital Foundation Partners with Media Arts in the Public Schools (MAPS) for Film

May 17, 2006View for printing

The Daly Hospital Foundation is the latest organization to partner with Media Arts in the Public Schools (MAPS) to produce a movie about Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital (MDMH). The group of Corvallis High School students conducted interviews, filmed, edited and produced the piece, under the direction of teacher Peter Rosten, a former television and movie producer who retired to the Bitterroot Valley after a 30-year Hollywood career.

“It was a logical choice," said Kevin Hurt, Executive Director of the Daly Hospital Foundation. “The students are passionate about making movies, and the film is built on interviews with hospital employees passionate about their careers and jobs at Marcus Daly. These kids are professionals, capturing the spirit of the hospital in order to move others.”

Doctors and staff at the hospital volunteered their time to talk on camera about their work at Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital. Their stories thread throughout the movie, documenting the beginnings, transitions and expansion of the hospital.

“The hospital has always been great to work with,” said Rosten, referring to a previous project that was filmed at Marcus Daly. “It’s been a good experience for the students to learn why people have chosen a career in health care, and to hear the enthusiasm they have for their jobs.”

The movie will be completed towards the end of May to premiere at the Daly Hospital Foundation Dessert Extravaganza on Thursday, May 25 held at the Bitterroot River Inn. The movie will become part of other presentations used to introduce the hospital to the community. Anyone interested in attending the Dessert Extravaganza should contact The Daly Hospital Foundation at 375-4764.

MAPS is a “School to Work” program based in Montana that teaches high school students skills that can develop into quality careers. The students produced public service television spots for Ravalli County DUI Task Force and S.A.F.E. (Supporters of an Abuse Free Environment) currently airing on Montana television.
