Creative Arts Program

Our Creative Arts Program inspires and promotes creativity while patients learn to physically and emotionally cope with their change in abilities while in the hospital. Our arts program encourages personal expression to help patients regain their independence. Since its inception, more than 700 patients have benefited from more than 70,000 art sessions.
