Winners 2012: Community Award










Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center, Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Program
Westchester is fortunate to have a world-class children’s hospital at Westchester Medical Center, where professionals  see the whole child, not just the disease.  The Child Life & Creative Arts Therapy program at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital provides soothing music for the tiniest premature babies and poetry writing for children with cancer or heart problems. Thanks to a dedicated team that includes board certified art and music therapists the arts are everywhere in this hospital, helping to heal sick children and comfort their families with a song, a painting, or a poem.  Through the power of the arts, Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center is bringing normalcy back into some very fragile lives.  For more information visit
