The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) is thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new affiliate the Centre for Creative Health (CCH).

The CCH aims to improve the quality and experience of healthcare through art and design, from living a healthy lifestyle, through to prevention, treatment, recovery and end of life care.

Based at the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH), the CCH will enhance the art already integral to the world-class hospital by providing best-practice arts and design programs, projects and other creative initiatives to the Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN).

In support of improving patient care for our community, CCH will support the creation of a healing environment for all hospital patients through rotating exhibitions of artwork, performances and other activities along with establish art, music, dance and writing residencies. Aligning with THRF’s vision to support research dedicated to improving outcomes for patients, CCH will also fund vital research to better understand, educate and inform on the benefits of art for our healthcare system.
