Description

Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center (Rancho) is one of the top ranked rehabilitation hospitals in the United States, and is a public health facility with a history of excellence and innovation with a patient-family centered approach to care. Vital to the success of the Civic Art Program for Rancho is the engagement of Rancho artists from the art programs and the clinicians, researchers, staff and volunteers that form the Rancho family. The artworks created under the Los Angeles County Arts Commission Civic Art Program foster a sense of community and humanity that reflect the mission of Rancho to restore health, rebuild life and revitalize hope for persons with a life-changing illness, injury or disability, while creating a welcoming, humanizing and uplifting atmosphere for the patients, visitors and staff. Artists Deborah Aschheim, De la Torre Brothers (Jamex and Einar) and Glenn Kaino/Kainoco, Inc.’s civic artworks contribute to the healing environment and are integrated within the Campus to build a cohesive vision that recognizes the power and journey of recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration.

Manus Curant (Caring Hand) Mano Curativa
The North Garden features a sculpture of a hand rising in a tree like fashion with ceramic leaves and flowers sprouting from the fingers to symbolize the new growth that takes place in the healing process. This sculpture honors “the healing hands” of the health providers on the campus, and the family and friends that provide invaluable support. Like Vitae Telam sculpture, the hand sculpture also exhibits relief carvings on the base that celebrate the role of advanced technology at this institution.
