Giving the sickest kids the best chance
When you give to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, you’re supporting advanced healthcare for children and their families who come from backyards across Western Canada. Together, we can give the sickest kids the best chance to live a long and healthy life.
Enhancing the paediatric cardiac intensive care unit
The Stollery Children’s Hospital is the hub for paediatric heart surgery in Western Canada. Thanks to donors like you, we recently invested $3.1 million to update our paediatric cardiac intensive care unit (PCICU). With 500 kids visiting the Stollery’s PCICU each year, we want to ensure parents can stay with their kids in a state-of-the-art, bright and family-friendly environment.
Focused on family-centred programs
Advanced care for patients and families has grown over the years, thanks to our donors’ contributions. The Stollery offers family-centred 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 $79 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.
