UNMH Child Life Program Unveils Murals

The UNM Children’s Hospital Child life Program unveiled  three pieces of artwork on Friday created through the Splashes of Hope Foundation.

Splashes of Hope Foundation works with artists and medical professionals to create customized murals that address the needs and goals of the patients. The murals are created using the individual themes, colors and images chosen by healthcare staff and the artists to stimulate the healing process.

The murals are tools for pain management, therapeutic distraction, soothing visualization and focal points during necessary procedures or medical care.  The three new murals at UNM Hospital have been funded by a local benefactor - two will be placed in the treatment room on the Pediatric Acute Care Unit at UNM Children's Hospital and one  will be installed at the UNM Children's Psychiatric Center.
