Unique to Sharp HealthCare in San Diego, the Arts for Healing program transforms the health care experience for more than 15,000 patients and their loved ones each year, helping improve the spiritual and emotional health of those who struggle with pain, anxiety, chronic illness and mental health issues.


Funded entirely by philanthropy, Arts for Healing uses art and music to help patients at Sharp Coronado Hospital through challenging times by reducing fear, pain and feelings of isolation during their hospital stay.

To continue to touch the lives of patients at Sharp Coronado Hospital, we are committed to raising $10,000 this holiday season in partnership with community members and grateful patients.

The introduction of art and music into the healing process minimizes stress levels, elevates spirits and increases comfort—often contributing to faster recovery. Arts for Healing activities and specialized therapies are:

  • Free to patients and family members
  • Facilitated by volunteers, therapists and staff
  • Funded entirely by philanthropy

The program has had a dramatic impact on Sharp Coronado Hospital and its patients, one that we now have the opportunity to grow and expand with your help.

Your support of Arts for Healing through this year-end crowdfunding challenge will help bring the healing power of art and music to more Sharp Coronado patients and their families.
