Placing healing art where it's needed most!
Introduction

The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals is a non-profit publicly supported organization dedicated to placing colorful, soothing photographs of nature in hospitals around the world to give comfort and hope to patients and their families, visitors, and caregivers.

Our vision is to create a shift in the way people view hospitals, from cold and sterile to warm and welcoming.

We wish to change hospitals by humanizing their environments, a concept that is slowly gaining influence in many countries.

Anyone can help our mission. Check out the links below to find out how you can help.
