Betty Mae Jumper Medical Clinic
Betty Mae Tiger Jumper was the first and only female Seminole Chief in Florida. Pursuing her education, she learned to read and write English which led her to become a nurse, co-found the Seminole Tribe’s first newspaper, and publish a memoir.
In honor of her great achievements, the Hollywood, FL, reservation built and opened a clinic encompassing nearly 40,000 square feet. The clinic will serve members of the reservation with a wide array of health services.
When this clinic was coming to fruition, the culture and heritage needed to be preserved to reflect its community members. Old photographs of Betty Mae had to be carefully recolored to bring vibrancy and life to the large personality that Betty Mae had. Throughout the clinic, there are images with Betty’s quotes and the values she stood for to inspire all who enter the facility.
Along with these inspirational images are images of the beautiful Florida landscape and other historical photos. Long hallways are filled with natural art and custom wall wrap designs, to bring peace and serenity to all that work and visit the center.
