The concert series is sponsored by the Adventist Midwest Health Healing Arts Program.
“We invite everyone to come out and celebrate the Christmas season with us,” said Tricia Treft, pastoral care
manager at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital. “What better way to spend time with our friends and neighbors than with beautiful music performed by these outstanding community groups?”
The Healing Arts Program includes musical performances in Adventist Hinsdale Hospital’s atrium as well as visits to patients at Adventist Hinsdale, Adventist La Grange Memorial
and Adventist Bolingbrook Hospitals
from a certified music practitioner harpist.
Other programs include rotating art galleries and a portable art cart with art supplies for patients to use at the bedside. It has been proven that engaging in art related activities can ease a patient’s anxiety and, potentially, their perception of pain.
Adventist Midwest Health includes Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, Adventist GlenOaks Hospital, Adventist Hinsdale Hospital and Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital. To find a physician, visit www.keepingyouwell.com.
