Musicians On Call has kicked off its new Music Pharmacy program, sponsored by Bose and Pandora, with the help of country music superstar Luke Bryan! The innovative program gives patients access the healing power of music at their bedside, including tablets equipped with Pandora Plus subscriptions and top-of-the-line Bose headphones.
“Musicians On Call is proud to have music icon Luke Bryan with us to unveil our Music Pharmacy program, which uses technology specifically geared towards improving patient mood and experience,” shared Pete Griffin, Musicians On Call President. “Thanks to our partners Bose and Pandora, we can offer patients an opportunity to access the healing power of music in between our weekly live performances in their rooms.”
To celebrate the launch, Luke Bryan made a surprise visit to New York City’s Lenox Hill Hospital to perform his hits like “Play It Again” and “Huntin’, Fishin’ And Lovin’ Every Day” for patients right at the bedsides. Following the visit, Luke delivered the Music Pharmacy tablets and headphones to the hospital which will host the equipment for the program. Lenox Hill is the first of 60 hospitals that will receive this new program over the next year.
The launch of the Music Pharmacy follows the success of the decade-long CD Pharmacy program, which provided tailored CD libraries and personal CD players to over 800 hospitals across the country.
