In a tribute to artistry, self-care and enduring relationships, Georgetown University Hospital hosted a reception Oct. 21 to celebrate a newly endowed program that seeks to enhance morale at Georgetown University Hospital.
The reception brought together all those who are involved with the program, now known as the Frederick Henry Prince IV Family Hospital Morale Program, together with members of the Prince family.
Representatives from Georgetown University Hospital and Georgetown Lombardi, as well as artists who form the backbone of the program’s weekly offerings, were on hand to personally thank Frederick Prince IV and his wife Diana Prince. Mr. Prince’s great grandparents Frederick Henry Prince and Abbie Norman Prince established the trust in 1932 that has helped support Georgetown Lombardi’s Arts and Humanities initiative for nearly a decade.
The Arts and Humanities Program, established through an earlier gift, is run by Director Nancy Morgan. Earlier this year, the F.H. Prince 1932 Trust donated an additional $2 million to the hospital to expand the morale program to all non-physician staff throughout the hospital. The program has gained a large following over the years among nurses, nurse practitioners, therapists, medical students and hospital administrative staff as a way to relieve their stress and refresh their energy so they can continue to provide the best care to patients.
Weekly classes and seminars given by artists, choreographers, musicians and writers are among the programmatic offerings that will be sustained through this most recent endowment. Although it is primarily an arts program, the Hospital Morale Program also includes special attention to Palliative Care and offers counseling for caregivers.
