General

Hope. Help. Heal.

Thanks to support from people like you, the Alberta Children's Hospital provides the very best in care to over 80,000 kids and families when they need it most.

The Alberta Chidren's Hospital Foundation raises funds for excellence and money raised by the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation is re-invested in the hospital and child health needs in this region.Through the generosity of our donors we are able to provide funding for family centred child health programs, specialized life-saving equipment and advanced pediatric research and education at the Alberta Children's Hospital.

Below are just a few of the exciting initiatives at our hospital made possible by community support:

Childhood Cancer

Our cancer team is made up of nationally - and internationally - recognized clinical and research specialists. Thanks to community support, they have established incredible expertise, especially in two key areas - Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BMT) and Experimental and Applied Therapeutics. The Alberta Chidren's Hospital is known across the country for its high BMT survival rates… and is the only Canadian member of an elite Phase I clinical trail group that is finding new cures for kids with cancer.

Emergency Care

Thanks to community support, our hospital has become a national leader in simulation training to provide the best emergency, trauma and critical care possible for children. Like flight simulation for pilots, high-tech human patient simulation (HPS) gives health care professionals the crucial opportunity to run mock trauma and resuscitation drills on sophisticated KIDSIM™ mannequins to better prepare staff for real emergencies. With generous support from the community, the Alberta Children's Hospital will soon become the only children's hospital in Canada with a patient simulation lab on site. Since the new hospital opened, more than five thousand doctors, nurses, residents, students and therapists have benefitted from hands-on learning with KIDSIM.

Brain Health

Thanks to people like you, we have recruited Dr. Jong Rho, a world-renowned clinician-scientist to lead both research and clinical care for children facing injury and illness of the brain and spinal cord. He is providing great leadership to our hospital's strong team of neurosciences experts - made up of national leaders in areas such as pediatric stroke and brain surgery.

In addition, we have also recruited Alberta's first Chair in Pediatric Mental Health, Dr. Frank MacMaster, who is the first in the world to use biological research to inform the development of new medication to help children with certain mood disorders. These medications are being evaluated in clinical trials right now to treat children with obsessive compulsive disorder.

Research

The Alberta Children's Hospital Research Institute for Child and Maternal Health has now united more than 180 leading experts in research, education, clinical care and community health who this year - with $4M in donations from our community - have leveraged an additional $28M in external grants and published more than 310 research papers
