Patients who see nature or art from their hospital beds recuperate almost one day faster and require fewer pain medications. A single hospital day averages $2,300, and about 25 million people per year stay at least one night in the hospital, which adds up to a potential of $56 billion in savings per year.
More than 50 percent of U.S. hospitals now offer arts programming—and that number is rising.
