Healing Arts Program
The Healing Arts Program at Orange Regional Medical Center is designed to support an environment of care for patients, their families, staff and the community. We believe in the beneficial effects of art in a healing setting, and artwork is integrated throughout all spaces -from public hallways, common areas and private patient rooms- to create a sense of well-being and renewal of the body, mind, and spirit.
Art offers unique opportunities to engage the whole person through restorative moments that provide comfort and inspiration. We present the work of local artists to strengthen community ties and to highlight the creative talent of our region. A consistent theme of Orange Regional’s art collection is the beauty of the natural world and the Hudson Valley.
