Therapeutic Environment of Care

Through evidence-based research, the hospital’s environment plays a significant role in the healing process and the satisfaction of patients and staff.  And besides, it just makes the experience for patients, their families and the Hospital staff more enjoyable.

Philanthropy supports the area’s largest local permanent art collection within the walls and rooms of the Hospital, music therapy, our outdoor healing environment and more…this is a great example of Martha Jefferson's Caring Tradition at work.

Specifically, philanthropy provides on-going support for the Hospital's art program with new purchases and donated works from artists and collections.  Through community support, the outdoor paths around the Hospital will soon be marked for distance along with a local trail map for visitors.  We are also exploring more ways to involve music, literature and poetry in the healing process.
