Patients at a pair of Valley hospitals are getting some new visitors – musicians.

The non-profit Musicians on Call launched a Phoenix branch in July, meaning many patients at the Phoenix VA hospital and Phoenix Children’s Hospital get concerts once a week. Dana Sones is the director of National Music Programs for Musicians on Call.
