Our philosophy and approach for art in healthcare is to research and provide art which is patient centered. We believe that the goals of the art program should include creating a comforting environment which helps to mitigate stress and evoke positive feelings, particularly for those under the most trying circumstances. With a healing art philosophy in mind, then a successful art program is achieved through research of the community, the population, the topography of the landscape, and the history of the community and hospital, which are also essential elements for the well-being of patients.

“Art in healthcare should lessen patient stress
and improve patient outcomes.”

-Dr. Roger Ulrich
