Arts in Healthcare

We believe the arts play a role in the healing process. That’s why we have incorporated various visual arts, music therapy and more throughout the health system. Our arts programs are free for patients and families, and our galleries, performances and collections are meant to be enjoyed by visitors and the public.

Art Exhibitions

In support of our commitment to creating a healing environment, we maintain a vibrant art collection. Guests enjoy rotating art exhibitions in Gateway, Main Hospital, North Hospital and Stony Point 9000. You’ll also find pop-up displays – often featuring work by our providers and staff members – within different departments.

We even bring diverse, framed art right to patients in hospital rooms. Studies show that patients who have art in their rooms recover faster and use less medication.
