Schneider Regional Medical Center in St. Thomas VI, US
Hit by two Category 5 hurricanes in 2017, this critical community hospital serves residents and guests of both St. Thomas and St. John. It suffered incredible damage to buildings and equipment and lost most of its artwork.
HAW is privileged to begin collecting original art for Schneider Regional Medical Center. The hospital continues to restore critical infrastructure and operational needs, such as new roofing, new equipment, and the awaited reopening of its cancer care center. The healing value of art is recognized, but replacement of art is not in the foreseeable budget. HAW will begin inviting artists to donate to this project soon. If you would like to be involved as an artist or a financial donor, please contact us.

What began in 1940 as a pediatric orthopedic institute is now a world-renowned full-service children’s hospital. Today, families from all over the globe turn to Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, in Wilmington, Delaware, to care for their kids.
The newly expanded hospital was designed by families for families. The thoughts and ideas of children, parents, and caregivers helped inspire the design of the new space – an environment to promote children's physical, emotional and spiritual healing. They've created a children's hospital like no other in the region, giving patients and families the promise of even better days to come. Artwork is front and center throughout the newly expanded space, and Healing Art Works' goal to bring more original art to patient spaces has served to enhance the hospital's initiative to exhibit art for healing purposes throughout the campus.

and the Hope Lodge of Central Pennsylvania in Hershey, PA. We collected 54 pieces of donated original art; the collection contributes to the home-like environment created at each facility
Since 1970, Hope Lodges have been providing cancer patients and their families with a free, temporary place to stay while patients are undergoing treatments away from home. By removing the worry of where to stay and what it will cost, patients canfocus on what is important: getting well.
In 2007, more than 18,000 patients, caregivers, and family members stayed at Hope Lodge locations nationwide, proving that Hope Lodges do indeed give hope a home. The environment is designed to feel like home with both private and public spaces for guests, allowing for quiet reflection as well as community interaction. The average length of stay is six to eight weeks.
