Giving kids the best chance at a long and healthy life
When you give to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, you are helping to invest in the best people, programs, equipment and research to make sure the Stollery remains among the best children’s hospitals in the country and the most specialized in all of Western Canada.
As a part of the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation’s $15-million Critical for Care campaign commitment, the Stollery will see its redeveloped neonatal intensive care unit open in early 2021. This new family-centred space will feature 16 patient rooms, including 11 single rooms, for a total of 21 beds, as well as a family lounge with a play area and a shared family sleep room.
Enhancing Stollery's pediatric intensive care unit
Last year, the redeveloped and newly named Hiller Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) opened at the Stollery Children’s Hospital, bringing specialized care, comfort and privacy to critically ill children and their families from backyards across Alberta. Thanks to our donors, we invested $1.2 million in this updated, family-centred space.
Focused on family-centred programs
Donors help to fund family-centred care programs that mentally and physically benefit children and families. The Stollery offers programs such as pet therapy, music therapy and the Awasisak Indigenous Health Program to support families staying at the Hospital and improve patient outcomes. Families are at the centre of everything we do.
Investing in research
Since 2006, we’ve been the primary funder of paediatric research through the Women and Children’s Health Research Institute at the University of Alberta, investing $83 million to date to discover new treatments and cures. Funding has allowed for the development of the Stollery Science Lab and Distinguished Researchers Child Health Research Program. This program allows seven of the top scientists at the University of Alberta to pursue initiatives that improve paediatric health in Alberta and around the world.
Help us support our kids
Together we can bring hope into sick children’s lives.
