New artwork donated to enhance the patient experience at The Edward M. Kennedy Community Health Center in Worcester, Mass., was unveiled this week at a reception celebrating National Health Center Week.

The Art Connection, a Boston-based nonprofit, donated the original works to The Edward M. Kennedy Community Health Center. 

“We wanted to celebrate our enhanced capacity to serve hundreds of new patients since our larger renovated facility opened in October” said the center’s president and CEO Antonia McGuire. 


“Our medical team and support staff are privileged to serve thousands of patients who come to our health center each year seeking high quality, affordable health care.  This beautiful artwork is a perfect compliment to our goal of promoting overall health and wellness, not just treating illness. We wanted to create an environment that is inspirational, respectful, and comforting. 
 
“To be surrounded by these incredibly beautiful works of art is quite inspirational for our patients and our staff. I can’t thank the organization and these generous artists enough for donating their work to the Kennedy Community Health Center,” McGuire said.
