Review for FOUNDATION FOR PHOTO ART IN HOSPITALS INC, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am honored to be part of an organization that takes an active role in changing the environment in which health care is delivered. Elaine and the Foundation's work provide a sense of beauty, comfort and distraction from the sterile, impersonal aspect of hospitals that patients usually encounter. Having the Foundation's art in a hospital setting creates a calmer and more natural setting. This can dramatically reduce fear and anxiety for patients and by doing so, has the ability to improve the mental and physical state of patients and medical staff alike. This is an important, necessary and overlooked benefit. My wish is that many more medical centers will make the changes that this Foundation helps to provide, as a part of improving the way medical care is delivered. Elaine, as founder of the Foundation, is dedicated and committed to this vision. It is inspirational to work with her.
