Musicians On Call launched its new ‘Music Pharmacy program’, sponsored by Bose and Pandora, with Luke Bryan at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. Musicians On Call’s Music Pharmacy gives patients access to “the healing power of music at their bedside”, including tablets equipped with Pandora Plus subscriptions and top-of-the-line Bose headphones. Following the visit, Luke delivered the Music Pharmacy tablets and headphones to the hospital which will host the equipment for the program, then went room to room listening to music with patients who will now be able to continue listening long after the musician leaves. “Musicians On Call is proud to have music icon Luke Bryan with us to unveil our Music Pharmacy program, which uses technology specifically geared towards improving patient mood and experience,” said Pete Griffin, Musicians On Call President.
Lenox Hill is the first of 60 hospitals that will receive this new program over the next year. In addition to the equipment, Pandora curators worked with the Music Pharmacy team to create three custom mixtapes featuring music that promotes positivity and healing for the hospital environment. Each Music Pharmacy is provided to hospitals free-of-charge, completely set up, and ready for patient use. More info: www.musiciansoncall.org
