When nurses are supported and valued, we know the organization as a whole is uplifted, all to the benefit of our patients
The Future We See
Brighter and Stronger Connections Between Nurses, Patients and our Communities.
The Clinic creates art-based workshops and performances that raise awareness and fight the epidemic of compassion fatigue and nursing burnout to help caregivers rediscover the inherent joy found in caring for another human being.
Our mission is based on the central theme that ALL human beings deserve to be seen, heard, and cared for, without discrimination. In doing this we are looking closely at health disparities, racism, and implicit bias as central themes in this work, in order to come alongside healthcare workers in dismantling health disparities and racism in the workplace.
At The Clinic, we strive to create a safe, communal space for artists, nurses, patients, and the community to commune together through the arts. Through live performance, dance, immersive theater, and art-based workshops for healthcare providers, The Clinic desires to cultivate a sense of wonder and joy through the arts. We believe that the arts bring healing into the hospital and that this leads to better patient outcomes in the hospital setting, decreased compassion fatigue, and decreased nursing burn-out.
We believe every nurse, patient, and family member deserves to be seen and heard and cared for. . .
The Clinic utilizes the See Me as a Person Framework that brings curiosity, wonder, and attunement to the bedside and offers nurses and patients a chance to create an authentic connection through the use of the arts.
