St. Joseph Healthcare’s Healing Arts Program Opens Exhibit by Local Artist James Linehan


The Gallery 900 Broadway, St. Joseph Internal Medicine in Bangor Through August 27

St. Joseph Healthcare is pleased to announce its Healing Arts Program will host an exhibit by local artist, James Linehan, through August 27 at The Gallery at 900 Broadway, St. Joseph Internal Medicine in Bangor.

St. Joe’s Healing Arts Program

The Healing Arts Program is supported by the Healing Arts Commission, a dedicated group of community volunteers, including Deb Dall, Katie Schafer, Mary Hollister, Kathy Lena, Jean Deighan and Jeff Wahlstrom. The program focuses entirely on enhancing the hospital’s environment through the arts, and its budget is funded entirely by philanthropic gifts.

“Displaying exhibits is a powerful way for St. Joe’s to fulfill its mission of providing healing and care for the whole person as well as for the community,” said Brad Coffey, Esq. Covenant Health Senior Vice President and Foundation President. “As soon as a new exhibit opens, it is readily visited by patients and visitors as it offers access to beautiful works of art as well as a quiet place to reflect.”
