Arts and Health

Compassionate presence, courageous conversations and meaningful connections

Whether music, movement, literature or visual art gives you a channel for exploring emotions and an outlet for relaxation and reflection. 

At Novant Health, the arts provide a holistic dimension to medical care, enhancing patient recovery, caregiver health and forming a bridge to healing. Arts programming places human connection at the forefront of every interaction - touching participants in a way that complements traditional care approaches and promotes healing.  

Being part of an arts program has been shown to reduce pain, shorten length of stay, and provide a better quality of life.
