Northeast Ga. Health System launches Therapeutic Music Program

By AccessWDUN Staff

Northeast Georgia Health System recently unveiled its new Therapeutic Music Program at the medical center.

The program is funded by employee donations through the NGHS Foundation, allowing the hiring of certified therapeutic musicians who provide Live Therapeutic Music to patients as part of their care plan.

“LTM creates a healing environment that helps minimize perception of pain, helps vital signs stabilize and allows patients to relax – even those who are intubated or not responsive,” according to a posting on the NGHS Facebook page.  “In fact, clinical research shows that LTM is often as effective as prescribed pain or sedation medications.”
