Creative Arts Program

The Creative Arts Program at the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific Foundation was established in 1994. Utilizing a variety of art media as a treatment modality, this innovative therapeutic art studio complements our existing therapy programs to enhance the rehabilitative process and improve the quality of life of our patients.

Since its inception, more than 700 patients have benefitted from over 70,000 art sessions.

Admission criteria. Program participants are current or former in-patients of the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific that are recovering from neurological injury or illness, including but not limited to spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury or stroke.
