Performing Arts

UF Health Shands Arts in Medicine serves as a national and international model for hospital based performing arts. Bringing dancers, musicians, actors and other performance based artists into the hospital, these programs engage patients and stimulate the environment of care in unexpected ways for the health care staff. Each week, any area of the hospital and clinical setting is transformed into a performance location – lobbies, waiting rooms, clinical hallways and even patient rooms become the stage for artists to inspire and enthrall patients, family members, visitors and staff.
