HEALTHCARE + SENIOR LIVING
︎Art has long been a mainstay of the healthcare space to beautify and pacify in often-sterile environments. Today, over 2,000 hospitals nationwide have art programs in some form to help soften the medical experience. Healthcare spaces necessarily integrate professional environments with some of life’s most intimate moments, whether joyful, frightening, or sad. These facilities must at once be clinical and comforting for a wide variety of providers, patients, and visitors. The latest research on the arts in healthcare shows that well-curated arts programming creates not only passive benefits but evidence-based improved health outcomes for everyone.
