Covenant Children’s needs your help to make each patient’s
stay as positive as possible. Some volunteer positions involve interacting
with patients and families, while others involve critical behind-the-scenes
work. All roles are important.
Arts in Medicine
Some artist volunteers, who are musicians, provide environmental music
enrichment through live music played in the hospital lobby. We occasionally
also have a harpist who plays music specifically tailored for premature
infants on our neonatal intensive care unit.
This unique space provides a stage for children to perform original songs,
poems, stories, and other artistic expressions. In addition, the theater
provides a stage for small groups providing entertainment and performances
such as puppetry, music, and magic shows. The theater has the capability
to have events shown on closed-circuit TV to children unable to leave
their hospital room.
