Healing Arts helps our patients
Healing is more than getting quality medical care — it’s about the heart, the mind and the spirit. We understand that during a patient’s most difficult moments, art can be a source of inspiration, comfort and strength. Since 2008, Renown has installed 1,500 original works of art and 1,500 fine art posters to enhance our healing environments.

This program supports the integration of the arts, including literary, performing and visual arts and design with the student experience in healthcare and community settings for therapeutic, educational, and expressive purposes.
