Health Information

 

Arts In Healthcare is a nation-wide movement that links the expressive arts with the healing arts and brings these into the mainstream of the traditional healthcare to promote the well-being of those who are ill and their caregivers. It integrates the expressive arts in all forms into the healthcare setting to provide creative outlets for patients, families, and staff.

The inherent goal in Arts In Healthcare is to humanize the care provided while offering creative channels for expression, stress reduction, and enhancement of positive thought processes. Basic beliefs of the program are that there is an "artist" within each of us and no talent or training is necessary to experience the rewards of creative expression.

Since its inception in April 1997, Lee Memorial Health System's Arts In Healthcare Program has developed into a multifaceted program offering a broad spectrum of creative arts to all ages and has become an integral part of health care within the hospital setting. Affiliation with Lee Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, Florida Very Special Arts grants, and private contributors, has provided opportunities for the expansion of the program.
