Calming. Relaxing. Rejuvenating. These are words not typically associated with visits to the hospital. But thanks to the Arts + Healthcare program—supported through gifts to the Barnes-Jewish Hospital Foundation— patients, caregivers, visitors and employees are having their spirits raised and their stresses eased.
Most recently, the program has collaborated with Deborah Parks, MD, to initiate the monthly performing arts event Sundays at Siteman.
All are welcome for this free event series at the atrium of the Center for Advanced Medicine for live music, refreshments and an opportunity to visit the Arts + Healthcare gallery. Arts + Healthcare fosters the institutional culture at the medical center, which includes the arts as an integral part of hope and healing.
