Wellness: Benard L. Maas Foundation
Have you ever been treated to a private concert before? What about a private concert while you were in the hospital? As part of the University of Michigan Health System’s Gifts of Art program, patients at C.S. Mott Children’s hospital receive more than the best medical care in the country; they have the opportunity to enjoy live bedside music in their hospital rooms. Live music at the bedside enhances the environment of care for patients and their families by providing a pleasant distraction which can relieve anxiety. The Gifts of Art bedside music program at Mott Children’s Hospital is made possible from a generous grant from the Benard L. Maas Foundation.
