The Department of Integrative Health Programs
As part of an effort to enhance patient care, NYU Medical Center established The Department of Integrative Health Programs as part of a grant from a private foundation. The primary goals of this program are to provide mind-body healing strategies to patients, families and health care staff, encourage the incorporation of these strategies into patient care, and foster a caring and healing environment throughout the Medical Center. The Department of Integrative Health Programs offers Prepare for Surgery Heal Faster workshops and relaxation techniques for treatments and procedures for patients across all ages and health care concerns.
