The Artist's Health Centre is run by a not-for-profit charitable organization with the name Artists’ Health Alliance (AHA). From their website,

Founded in 1997, AHA continues to be the only organization in Ontario whose mission is to promote the health and wellbeing of all professional and emerging performing and creative artists. ...

The Artists’ Health Alliance is a one of a kind organization. We are about partnership between the artistic and medical community for healing, strengthening and empowering the creative community. We are accomplishing this through the work of the excellent clinicians at the Artists’ Health Centre, through the work of volunteer committees and the educational and outreach initiatives of the Alliance.

AHA has been the bridge connecting artists to the Artists’ Health Centre since its doors opened at Toronto Western Hospital in 2002. We continue to work in close partnership with the AHC to this day and will soon celebrate 10 years of integrative healthcare for artists.

T.E.S.T. own's Carolyn from Sprout's Press Desings serves on the Artists' Committee for the AHA and reports that their workshops for "creative types to prevent injury, healing, physio, etc. ... are fantastic". The Open House is a good chance to learn what they are all about.
