Creative Arts

Since 1987, the Creative Arts Program has worked to promote the family-centered care philosophy of University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital. Both art therapy and music therapy reinforce the value of family interaction, and support the health needs of the child's mind and body.

The Creative Arts Program is one of the many unique services of UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. This special program compliments Rainbow's renowned pediatrics medical care by supporting the physical and emotional needs of patients at Rainbow.
