Healing Arts & Animal-Assisted Therapy

Healing arts musicians

Edward's Healing Arts program taps into the power of music, artwork, and animals to help patients feel relaxed and more comfortable during their hospital stay.  

Professional musicians – including violinists, harpists, and classical guitarists –perform in hallways and lobbies to create a relaxing environment for patients. Many hallways throughout the hospital are used as rotating art galleries, showcasing artwork and photography created by local artists.

To learn more, contact the Healing Arts department at (630) 527-3343.

Animal-assisted therapy
Specially trained dogs and their handlers visit with participating patients to reduce stress and make hospital stays more enjoyable. Here is a link to more information about our growing animal-assisted therapy program. In order to be eligible, dogs are trained through the Midwest Canine Academy, and are certified through Therapy Dogs, Inc.

If you would like to support the Healing Arts or Animal Assisted Therapy programs through a donation to the Edward Foundation, vist www.edward.org/waystogive.
