MUSICIANS ON CALL BRINGS LIVE AND RECORDED MUSIC TO THE BEDSIDES OF PATIENTS IN HEALTHCARE FACILITIES.
Bringing a dose of joy to the hospital experience for more than one million people since 1999, Musicians On Call (MOC) delivers live and recorded music directly to the bedsides of patients, families and caregivers in healthcare environments nationwide. MOC has a vision of a world filled with the healing power of music. Through its programs, MOC Volunteers perform live for children and adults facing any health challenge, including Veterans recovering in VA facilities, family members supporting loved ones in need and healthcare workers caring for patients. As the nation’s leading provider of live music in hospitals, Musicians On Call uses music to promote and complement the healing process. It has been demonstrated that music has a direct effect on people and can manage stress, alleviate pain and improve pain tolerance, blood pressure, outlook and overall mood.
To meet the increasing demand for its programs, this year MOC will launch a proprietary online platform that will transform how the healing power of music is used to improve the patient experience, making live music in a healthcare facility truly “on call.” More than 800 volunteers and hundreds of award-winning recording artists have participated in these programs over the past 23 years.
