The arts and health – a winning concept!
SinceNovember of 2010, the CSSS Memphremagog has exhibited the works of artists from the Memphremagog MRC. To date, 24 artists have exposed close to 70 pieces. The artists give 20% of any sales that they make to the Memphremagog Hospital Foundation. Both the CSSSM and the hospital’s Foundation are happy with this partnership. Not only are local artists contributing to the well-being of the hospital’s clientele, residents, visitors and personnel, but they are contributing to the vitality of the community.
