Musicians On Call has partnered with WXPN, the nonprofit public radio station of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. This is Musicians On Call's first expansion out of New York.
Since 2004, WXPN Musicians On Call has made a difference in the lives of more than 86,000 patients and their families by bringing live music to the bedsides of patients through weekly programs at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden, and Philadelphia VA Medical Center in West Philadelphia.
Working with the New York office on training and bookings, WXPN calls on its community of local musicians and passionate listeners to deliver the WXPN Musicians On Call services. A groundswell of volunteer support makes it possible to provide multiple weekly Bedside Performance Programs in healthcare facilities in the Delaware Valley area.
