In this article, an expressive arts therapist at the Jerusalem French Hospital St. Louis explores how exposure to the arts has positive side effects on families, staff, and other patients and how an oasis of shared, rich, cross-cultural life exists in a place of illness and death. Beneficial healthcare outcomes are achieved in the hospital when cultural richness interacts with the use of the arts.
