The Art of Health and Healing program of Contra Costa Health Services has been operational for approximately two years at several locations in the Contra Costa Health Services system. The program was developed in an organic way through the vision and commitment of the program committee. The committee is comprised of hospital employees and volunteers who believe in the arts as a means for improving the wellness of the health system’s service population and staff, and for contributing to a healing environment of care.
Our goal is to improve community wellness through the arts and creative programs. To engage, support, and empower staff through the arts, creative opportunities, and education. In addition to creating a culture and healing environment in which the arts are accessible and engage everyone.
