Support the Arts in HealthCare Gifts Fund
The new pavilion at UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital doesn't look or feel like a traditional hospital, thanksto the UK Arts in HealthCare Program. This program, supported by the generosity of private donors, brings together visual and performing arts, incorporating the unique aspects of Kentucky landscape, art, and music. The program highlights local, national, and international artists; art in multiple forms; and various initiatives to enhance the healing environment.
The Arts in HealthCare Program was developed for much deeper reasoning than bringing together pleasing aesthetics for our patients and visitors. Studies show that integrating the arts into health care settings cultivates a healing environment; supports the physical, mental and emotional recovery of patients; and communicates health and recovery information. It also helps reduce stress and improves workplace satisfaction for caregivers. The mission of the program is to create a healing environment of care, and to focus on the spiritual and emotional well-being of our patients, families, caregivers and staff. The Arts in HealthCare Program has grown since its inception, however, there is more we hope to do to touch the heart and spirit of a patient or a visitor. If you have a passion for the arts, and the role it plays as a powerful and positive force in the healing process, please make a gift to support our mission.
