Although becoming sick or injured is never a good thing, the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles takes unusual strides to ensure that their patients have creative ways to help them get through their recovery. The hospital’s artist program allows patients to focus on painting, music, dance and other artistic endeavors. While medicine and doctors help with the physical side of things, this program helps to relieve anxiety, stress and other negative aspects that come along with having an illness.
At the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, self-expression is extremely important. The patient’s needs always come first, as exemplified by their artists program. In fact, local artists and performers are engaged to work with the children. Certified expressive art therapists are even enlisted to promote the educational aspects of each patient’s artistic interests.
The first and largest pediatric hospital in Southern California, CHLA is one of only 12 hospitals in the nation – and the only one in California – ranked in all 10 pediatric specialties by the U.S. News & World Report.
