The CCH aims to provide best-practice arts and design programs, projects and other creative initiatives to the patients, visitors and staff in hospitals across the Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN).
The CCH was established to build on these current health outcomes, improving the quality and experience of healthcare through the arts, design and other creative initiatives across the continuum of care.
In addition, the Centre will work across the biomedical precinct (Adelaide BioMed City) to create cross-disciplinary and inter-institutional collaborations, positioning South Australia as a research leader in this important field.
To support the sustainability of the arts in health program, the Centre has been established with a dedicated fundraising mechanism and its own board. All Programs, projects and initiatives will be funded through the CCH’s philanthropic and donor contribution and grants.
One hundred per cent of donations made to the Centre are directed through The Hospital Research Foundation to the arts, design and creative health programs and projects to benefit patients, families and staff at the new RAH.
The Centre for Creative Health will build on the art and design woven into the architecture of the new RAH (murals, gardens and sculpture), by providing arts and design programs and projects to improve the quality and experience of healthcare for patients, families and hospital staff.
