          I love finding the “hidden” creative places that those outside their immediate areas know nothing about. The Creative Center, founded in 1994, is a hidden gem to those beyond the New York City area. It has been supporting the arts in health in hospitals and other settings for 23 years. Explore their work and get some ideas for your own community.

     Integrating the arts into medical practice is part of the revolution of medicine in our society. The focus on a healing environment shows itself in the development of hospitals, especially the leading children’s hospitals, in the last 25 years. The passionate arguments over the Prouty Garden at Boston Children’s Hospital are only a single example of this.

     This article from the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Innovation introduces an innovation designed to reduce stress in hospital patients. CARE, the Continuous Ambient Relaxation Environment Channel is a 24-hour channel designed to make the hospital environment one of healing. Does a hospital  in your community need this?

I am always delighted–and surprised–when a mainstream publication begins to notice an important development. Slowly but surely the role of the creative arts in health and well-being becomes more visible in our world.

Today’s post, from a late September issue of US News and World Report, offers a great introduction to the arts and healing through an article on the program at Montefiore Medical Center in New York. Share it with your local hospital!
