The Healing Arts at Montefiore


The Healing Arts at Montefiore is a network of programs that uses the arts, creative arts therapies, integrative medicine, and other healing approaches to enhance the quality of life, health and well-being of Montefiore’s patients, associates and community.

Healing Arts initiatives work to further Montefiore’s strategic goals of providing high-quality, patient-centered care and producing superior patient satisfaction.  As the largest healthcare provider in the Bronx, Montefiore is in a unique position to play a key role in enhancing quality of life among borough residents.  Healing Arts programs are available in the Children’s Hospital, Oncology, Palliative Care, Rehabilitation Medicine, Psychiatry, and other departments to complement patient care by helping to reduce pain and other physical symptoms, provide comfort and enjoyment, promote self-expression, and enhance quality of life.
