Community Sponsorship Request
Porter Adventist Hospital receives numerous requests for financial contributions and sponsorships. Supporting community-based organizations, their events and programs, is an important part of our mission to support and care for our communities we serve.
The Healing Arts program at Porter Adventist Hospital is providing patients, family members, staff members and the community with an environment that calms and revives the senses during times of stress and anxiety.
The Healing Arts program includes visual arts, music, nature and community outreach. All components feature local artists. This program is fully supported by community donations.
Music therapy has been shown to reduce stress and even aid in the healing process. At Porter Adventist Hospital, certified music therapists come right to the bedside to play soothing therapeutic music. Regional musicians perform free concerts in public areas of the hospital, bringing benefits to everyone.
The healing power of touch has proven health benefits including lowering blood pressure, boosting your immune system, and improving sleep. To help take a patient's mind off of pain, certified massage therapists provide gentle, soothing hand and foot massages.
The hallways and patient rooms throughout the hospital are enriched by stunning artwork that reflects the beauty of Colorado. Created by regional artists and local students, the nature-based art was chosen for its powers to reduce stress and provide positive distraction, which can be helpful in the healing process.
Steeped in natural light and built from environmentally sound materials, Porter Adventist Hospital upholds the Adventist belief that health care is rooted in the power of God as reflected in nature. A peaceful Healing Garden right off of the main lobby provides a calming waterfall and quiet spots for patients, visitors, and staff to sit and reflect.

Kids Alive!Support for children of parents with cancer.
Kids Alive! is one of the very few organizations in the Denver area that provides support for children, ages 6-16, of parents with cancer. We are a unique, privately funded program offered at no charge to any family where a parent is dealing with a cancer diagnosis.
Our goal is to provide a safe, helpful environment for children of cancer patients where we can:
- Create a place for a child to be a child - to experience fun, support and continuity of life apart from catastrophic illness.
- Facilitate a better relationship between cancer patients and their families, reducing guilt and anxiety in children.
- Help parents interpret their children’s behavior as adaptive to the trauma in the family and improve communication in the family.
- Develop awareness of resources for both parents and children.
Kids Alive! is committed to supporting children and families in our community. All applications are reviewed on a first come, first served basis. We will aim to contact all individuals who apply or request information in timely manner.
Kids Alive! is a free program made possible by the generosity of community donors, Porter Hospital and the Porter Hospital Foundation.
