Logo Information

This is a contemporary DNA helix that emphasizes the letter “S” for Sciences and Santé. The DNA represents the acute personal level of service and fine attention to detail that will be delivered with the new health care system. The interweaving of the two helices represents the cooperation and connectivity of the multifaceted health network. The differentiation of the two helices symbolizes a strong historical foundation and a bright and growing future. The dominant blue helix points to the northeast. Scientifically speaking, the double helix is a strong icon for research.

As the visual identity for HSN, it is imperative that the logo be displayed in bilingual format on all materials that are used from the organization, its various sites and affiliated organizations.
