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.

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