The Healing Ceiling Project is a partnership between the Port Perry Hospital Foundation and the Scugog Council for the Arts that will brighten people’s hospital stay.
With the help and talent of local artists, hospital ceiling tiles will be painted and placed back in patient rooms as works of art. This will allow patients to have something calming and colourful to look up at while at Port Perry Hospital.
Similar initiatives have proven successful at hospitals throughout North America and have shown the public that there is a healing power associated with art. Port Perry Hospital will be the first hospital in Durham Region to have painted ceiling tiles.
The benefits of Healing Ceilings:
• Health care tool that will help relieve feelings of anxiety, depression or boredom
• Can be used as a purposeful distraction when a patient has to undergo a small procedure
• Act as a conversation starter for people visiting a loved one
• A beautiful thing to look at
We need your help!
Our hope is to have a Healing Ceiling tile above every inpatient bed this year and each tile sponsored by a caring community member.
Healing Ceiling tiles are available for sponsorship through a minimum donation of $200 to the Port Perry Hospital Foundation. Tiles will be on display and available for sponsorship at Culture Days in downtown Port Perry on Saturday, September 28th from 11 am to 5 pm or by calling the Foundation office at 905-985-7321 ext. 45580.
Healing Ceiling organizers would like to thank the amazing artists who have donated their talents and all who help ensure this project by sponsoring a Healing Ceiling tile.
