For Rabin Medical Center, Israel's premier medical complex, superior healthcare is not just about innovative techniques and technology, and a first-rate medical staff. It is also about integrating less traditional, but proven and effective methods of treatment that enhance and even accelerate the healing processes. One such methodology currently in use at Rabin Medical Center is the introduction of vibrant, palliative visual and tactile art forms to soothe and raise the spirits and actually improve the recovery rate of patients. It is in support of this innovative program called Project of the Arts for which American Friends of Rabin Medical Center is seeking $100,000 in funding for a permanent collection by renowned artist, David Gerstein.
The therapeutic benefits of color, light, sound and texture on one's senses is no longer speculative. When designing Project of the Arts there was thoughtful consideration that an affliction might impinge on one of a patient's senses and created an environment in which many senses are stimulated.
The David Gerstein exhibit enriches the hospital's surroundings and is an impressive complement to the other works of art, waterfalls and music that is piped in throughout the hospital. These enhancements in tandem with the hospital's centerpiece sculpture garden, in which eight life-size sculptures can be viewed along a spiral path or from the accessible seating on the grounds, are part of Rabin Medical Center's progression toward creating a restorative healing environment.
The positive impact that Project of the Arts has on its patients, caregivers and visitors is indisputable. It is projected that data from future studies will confirm the current theories and discover more significant and broader implications of therapeutic benefits. We hope you will be inspired to support Rabin Medical Center's pioneering project and commitment to the fusion of mind body medicine, for the one million patients the hospital treats, annually.
The total cost of the project, which includes 101 David Gerstein wall sculptures, is $100,000. The sponsor of this project will be honored with a ceremony in the hospital and a personalized wall plaque in the donor's name.
The cost of sponsoring an individual floor is $12,500. Each floor houses two departments and each department has five original sculptures. A donor may elect to sponsor the entire project or an individual floor.
