One of the most important developments in the use of the arts in healing has been the integration of the arts into all aspects of contemporary medicine, especially in the hospital setting. There has been a growing realization, supported by the leadership of Children’s Hospitals across the nation, of the importance of every aspect of the hospital experience and care for patients, families, and hospital staff. There are dynamic examples in several cities, but Boston leads the pack in the holistic approach to medicine that has grown there over the last few decades.

It is nice to see the mainstream press taking note of this, with this article in the Wall Street Journal and many recent ones in the New York Times.

READ AND READ AGAIN…SHARE…SUPPORT THE INTEGRATION OF THE ARTS INTO THE HOSPITALS IN YOUR COMMUNITY.
