All televisions within Robinson Memorial Hospital, Robinson Medical Arts Building and Robinson Professional Center have been equipped with C.A.R.E. Channel 22, beginning Oct. 1.
The C.A.R.E. (Continuous Ambient Relaxation Environment) Channel combines peaceful scenes of nature with music and is available 24/7 on Channel 22.
Made possible through donations to the Healing Arts Program, a Robinson Memorial Hospital Foundation program, the C.A.R.E. Channel is an alternative to commercial television.
This therapeutic tool can help reduce stress, mask hospital noise and is comforting for both patients and families.
Patients will have more than 84 hours of content, which randomly shuffles throughout the day and week.
The C.A.R.E. Channel specifically addresses patients' needs throughout the full 24-hour cycle by offering a sunrise sequence when the day begins at 6 a.m. leading to the daytime programming, then a sunset sequence at 10 p.m., leading to more soothing music and a star field overnight.
