“We know that works of art can enhance the patient environment when carefully chosen and thoughtfully curated. Artworks lend comfort, beauty and wit to the environment. They promote innovation by challenging our ways of seeing. Above all, they assert the strength of our humanity in the face of sickness and misfortune.”
