About Us

Healthcare Art Programs, Art-for-Healing, Art in the Healing Environment, Evidence-Based Healing Art Programs… The list of labels goes on and on. But no matter what you call it, art in the healthcare setting has “come into its own” as an essential, creative, and therapeutic part of the overall Hospital and Healing Experience.

And we say “It’s About Time!”

With over 25 years of partnering with hospitals, healthcare systems, medical office complexes, ambulatory care centers, nursing homes and all manner of healing environment and healthcare-related facilities and organizations; Health Environment Art Services is the premier Art Consulting company working exclusively within the healthcare industry. Our highly-trained and Evidence-based Design Accredited consulting staff has over 150 combined years’ experience and has successfully completed close to 10,000 individual Healthcare Art Programs to-date. And they are still going strong. We continue to learn from each experience, searching for ways to make your Healthcare Art Program a unique reflection of your values and mission.

Our philosophy towards creating your healthcare art program is simple - We listen to you.

Whether it is art for the Lobby and Waiting Areas, Patient Rooms and Corridors, Emergency Department, Women’s Services, Labor and Delivery, Imaging and Diagnostics; or all-of-the-above, we listen to your voice, guiding where needed and never imposing our “look” onto your unique art program. Your needs, your vision, and your goals are what matter to us. A successful healthcare art program is one that is on-time, within budget, and creates a special healing environment supportive of patients, staff, and visitors.

Because of our experience in Healthcare Art Consulting, we work seamlessly with Healthcare Interior Designers, Architects, Contractors and the various other professionals serving the healthcare industry. Many of our Healthcare Artwork Consultants come from Interior Design and Healthcare backgrounds themselves, making a healthcare art learning curve practically non-existent. Likewise, our experience within the artwork industry is unparalleled, allowing us to bring all manner of creative solutions to the table for your healthcare art program. Rotating Art Programs, History Walls, Storytelling Features, and Local Artist Showcases are just a few of the options we can explore with you.

From the budget-conscious to the award-winning – we want to help you put your best face forward! We will work with you to make your healthcare art program come alive, promote healing, and reflect you and your community.

It is all about the experience and it all starts simply. When you call us, we listen.
