Art @ Des Peres Hospital is a unique endeavor to connect and inspire our community through the work of local artists and enrich the lives of hospital patients, staff, and visitors. It is well documented that art can help in the healing process. This program was developed to help alleviate some of the strain of a hospital experience. Art can take us out of the moment by giving us something else on which to focus. It is our hope with this exhibit that we can create a richer environment and a more pleasant experience for patients, guests, employees, and medical staff.
