It's an exciting time in history as Washington leaders work to repair a broken U.S. healthcare system. At this critical moment, RxArt is hard at work as well - mending the broken spirit of patients caught in that failing system. Too often, patients arrive at our nation's hospitals defeated by their illness and overwhelmed by a healthcare maze which is burdensome. These challenges won't disappear overnight, even with comprehensive health reform.
That's why RxArt is making steady, small improvements in our nation's hospitals right now - with creativity, we aim to improve the experience of healthcare treatment and steady patients who need relief. Tonight, when you discuss the latest in Washington healthcare politics, take a break and consider RxArt's small yet creative approach to reform.
RxArt is a non-profit organization that transforms pediatric hospital facilities into comforting and engaging spaces through site-specific installations by contemporary artists. The therapeutic potential of visual art to stimulate healing is well known, and we provide children and their families with creative respite from the anxiety and the pain of illness, offering hope.
