NTUCH Art Donation Project (2007-2009)

A research conducted by Chelsea and Westminster Hospital from London UK in 2003 demonstrates that artworks in the hospitals may not only comfort family’s emotion and relieve 75% of stress from medical staff but also enable 80% of patients to be in a pleasant mood for patiently passing through the relatively long therapeutic period.

The National Taiwan University Children’s Hospital (NTUCH) Art Donation Project was initiated by the founder Mrs. Cheerora Yeh during the period when she was taking care of her hospitalized grandson due to septicemia, personally feeling the dull atmosphere of hospital space that affecting the moods of patients, family and medical staff, especially for those children who scared to see a doctor. Accordingly, she appealed to originate the aesthetic hospital project. It took two years for be Fine Art to plan and prepare the project, traveling a long instance to investigate The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital in the US and the National Center for Child Health and Development in Japan and jointly conducting research as well as coordinating fundraising with National Taiwan University Hospital. Consequently, more than two hundred of painting and sculpture artworks were properly organized. In 2008 when the first national children’s hospital was dedicated, with the common commitment from nineteen domestic enterprises, we fulfilled this original aspiration in rendering utmost compassion by donating artworks.

As a great achievement integrating healthcare with art, NTUCH has become the first aesthetic hospital in Taiwan. NTUCH Art Donation Project not only represents a landmark for Taiwanese medical history but also pours a warm stream of tender solicitude towards the next generation of the country.
