The Power of Art
Tanner recognizes the importance of healing the body, mind and spirit.
So we’ve redesigned what a hospital facility ought to be. Walls of glass, soaring skyward, allow natural sunlight to flood open and spacious public areas, like atriums and rotundas — themselves a new concept in hospital architecture. Water features like fountains and a fish and turtle habitat bring the natural healing qualities of moving water into the patient care setting.
And we’ve embraced the healing power of art, not merely through creating it, as with our expressive therapy programs at Willowbrooke at Tanner, but through experiencing it — such as the wonderful music of Tanner’s unique Harmony for Healing program.
Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton is fortunate to hang from its walls a collection of art that would be the envy of any collector. These pieces were made specifically to hang in this hospital by talented artists of regional and national renown.
This PDF guide to the art on the walls of Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton will walk you through experiencing the healing power of art for yourself. Stand and stare into the canvases. Lose yourself in the loving brush-strokes from a hand who also sought to heal you. Sit and listen to a musician plying his or her craft. Because art is more than medicine — it’s medicine beyond measure.
