Bruyere: Saint-Vincent Hospital

60 Cambridge St. North

Ottawa, ON

At Radical Connections and Bruyère, we believe participation in the arts should be a standard aspect of healing and wellness. During Grand Rounds at Saint-Vincent Hospital (SVH), visitors will get a chance to sample the art and artists offered to the people in care at Bruyère's hospital and long-term-care sites.

What are Grand Rounds? A doctor's daily rounds are a central aspect of inpatient medical care with their focus on the immediate care and support of patients in the hospital. Grand Rounds are educational sessions, open to all members of medical departments. Our Culture Days Grand Rounds, brought to you by Bruyère and Radical Connections, are open to artists, arts workers, and all members of the healthcare community as well!

Come to a concert in the Atrium, visit an in-hospital exhibition, or learn more about our programs in an online panel discussion and a curators talk. All Grand Rounds programming will be available online, with in-person availability dependent on SVH general visitation restrictions at the end of September.

In person events will only be available to staff and patients. All in-person audience members will need to fill out a short screening form and will need to wear a mask or the appropriate personal protective equipment provided at the entrance. Participants also need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (two doses) to enter the hospital.

Our goal is to make the events and learning opportunities accessible to everyone and offer different ways for people to participate. Assistive technology, including joysticks and eye-tracking systems, will allow patients with physical impairments to visit this realistic virtual space!

Radical Connections and Bruyère greatfuly acknowledge the support of the Eldercare Foundation of Ottawa, the Ontario Arts Council, Arts Network Ottawa and the City of Ottawa
