healing heARTS

WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital’s healing heARTS initiative is part of a growing recognition in healthcare that the arts can exert a powerful effect on the healing process. Since its inception in 2015, healing heARTS has guided the development of a healing environment within WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital that is intended to promote wellness and self-healing through the arts and reduce stress and anxiety for patients, visitors and employees.  The Adams County Arts Council is proud to be a partner in healing heARTS, offering a variety of classes, events, and experiences to promote wellness of mind, body and spirit.

In the case of inclement weather, the Arts Council follows the actions of the Gettysburg Area School District. When schools close, the AECenter will close. When schools have a two-hour delay, the AECenter will open at 11a.m.
