Musical Medicine - Departments & Programs, Programs and Initiatives, Art Program


A Musical Medical program is run jointly with the volunteers office. A small grand piano in the hospital's clinics lobby is played daily for the enjoyment of passers-by and people waiting in the lobby area. A piano in the Oncology/Hematology/BMT area is also available to be played, and musicians who play portable instruments are being sought to perform one-on-one for patients in various units.

Special performances are scheduled, particularly during the December holidays, for our G5/2 clinics lobby. Please contact art coordinator Amanda Kron at (608) 263-5992 if you have a singing group or musical group that would like to volunteer their time and talents to entertain our patients.

Volunteers who work up on the inpatient units on a regular basis will need to attend a volunteer orientation session and should contact Volunteer Services at (608) 263-6046.
