Music Care Program
Music is powerful and has an emotional effect on people. The Music Care Program at MidMichigan Medical Center - Midland is designed to help our visitors as well as patients and staff members feel the calming effects of music. It has been said that listening to music can heighten positive emotions, reduce stress and anxiety, increase relaxation, improves mood, reduces blood pressure, decreases pain and many more health care benefits.
"I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music." -- Billy Joel
