– Who We Are

A group of twenty diverse and enthusiastic art and design professionals make up our Arlington Heights, IL, and Nashville, TN team.  With over 150-years of collective experience in providing art services for healthcare and corporate clients, our creative design team is proudly recognized for its level of creativity and customer service.

In 2020, under the new direction of Joseph Liss,  Corporate Artworks, Health Environment Art Services, and Communicare Boards joined forces with one of Chicago’s leading art production companies, Artmill Group. With ten additional companies to work with, this expanded our range even further with art production, custom framing, and design services for the corporate and healthcare industries.

The Company

“The Art of the Message”  In 2012, Communicare Products, Inc. was formed due to growing product needs within our sister company Health Environment Art Services. The development of the Communicare Board originally came about due to constricted wall space in hospital patient rooms for any type of artwork and the lack of patient information being displayed for hospital staff and families. This innovative product combines art and messaging all in one clean, streamlined housing.

Our Clients Reviews

" We are very pleased with our fully changeable Communicare Boards at the Milwaukee VA. We have been using the boards in our Spinal Cord facility for over a year and the staff is very pleased. We are in the process of implementing them in every patient room throughout the Hospital. We chose Communicare for a number of reasons, but the most important factor is the fully interchangeable insert. It gives us the ability to update the boards with new information anytime we need to. Communication between the staff and patients in the hospital is extremely important. The boards will not become obsolete, which will save money over time. . The boards are in excellent quality and we expect them to last and look beautiful for many, many years. Laure and the staff at Communicare have also been awesome to work with. We love our boards!

" The Communicare Boards team is always quick to respond with quotes and pricing. They go above and beyond in anticipating our needs, and are incredibly easy to work with! We have purchased the fully changeable boards for four of our units. These boards are high quality, easy to write on, and easy to clean. Our staff loves them! We would never go back to regular whiteboards, ever! "
