Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas embraces the belief that a patient's surroundings can have a profound healing effect on both mind and body.
Before the earliest blueprints, before a single shovelful of dirt was moved, there was a commitment to a visionary design philosophy that embraces the power of art as part of the healing process. That vision is far from a simple subjective notion: Several landmark studies have confirmed a powerful connection between a patient's physical environment — even something as basic as a room with a view — and a patient's physical and spiritual well-being.
Today, there are more than 900 paintings, sculptures and other art at Dell Children's. This collection includes work from renowned artists such as Bolivia's Graciela Boulanger and George Rhoads from New York City, as well as Texas — and Austin area — artists.
