How do you create an environment at a hospital that is not just treating the sick or doing triage? And create one that provides a healthy, nurturing environment for patients, their families and for the caregivers who work there? Evidence shows that environment plays an important role in promoting healing and creating a sustainable workplace. Nowhere is this more evident than at Tucson Medical Center, with a history rooted strongly in its sense of place in the Sonoran Desert. From expansive courtyards, a 1.75 mile walking path, a community garden for staff and a healing arts program that includes music, sculpture and art, TMC’s healing environment compliments and enhances the compassionate care that is provided to all who visit and work there. I cannot wait to share their story. This show made possible by the generous support of Tucson Medical Center.
