Healing through unique art and design

Research shows that looking at art based on nature helps reduce stress, so here, we use the positive distractions provided by art to help kids heal. Images such as water, trees and outdoor spaces reduce anxiety and pain, and studies show that providing interactive opportunities for kids reduces their stress and anxiety. It’s with this knowledge that our hospital strives to bring the outdoors inside.

In particular, our featured art focuses on Colorado and the west by incorporating colors, materials, geography, cultural heritage and other qualities unique to the region. This provides a fun and familiar yet new experience for patients and families, no matter how often they are here.
