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, we have over 1200 patients participating in the program each year.
