What is the Stollery's Children Hospital Foundation?

The Stollery's Children Hospital Foundation is a place where thousands of sick children are taken care of to get the best medical attention. This foundation helped and still helps save thousands of children's lives each day. Without the Stollery's Children Foundation, this would be an entirely different world, especially without the children who did not get a second chance at life. In the University of Alberta Hospital, there are 140 physician and 400 staffs. The Stollery's Children Foundation are dedicated to providing many children with the best health care in Canada.

The History of the Stollery's Children Hospital Foundation

The Northern Alberta Stollery's Children Foundation was established in 1978 in Edmonton, Alberta. In 1992, the name was changed to Children's Health Foundation of Northern Alberta, this was to reflect on teh role of the Foundation where funds were raised to support regional Child Health Care. Over the next seven years, the Foundation was helping to benefit for specialized services provided by the Child Health Program across Canada. In 1999, the name was changed to Children's Health Foundation.

With the generous support received by the people in the community, over $10 million was raised towards building a children's hospital in Edmonton, Alberta. In 1991, the Stollery's Children Hospital was the only hospital in Edmonton whose foundation was not specified to supporting the needs of children.
