Bringing the healing power of art to the communities we serve to enhance the patient experience
About Healing Arts
The Mission of the Healing Arts Program is to create restorative and calming environments for patients, visitors and staff by integrating the creative arts and aesthetics into the healing process. Healing Arts seeks to bring literary, performing and visual art experiences that celebrate the cultural diversity of the communities we serve.
