Hospitals oversees, supports (financially and programmatically), and

overview of the program’s history at NYC Health + Hospitals.
& Memory is a program that brings personalized, digitized music

and hold conversations. Music & Memory reduces patients’ reliance
on medication which can, in turn, impact safety, quality, and
