Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation 

Alberta Children’s Hospital is the only hospital in the province devoted exclusively to the care of children. That means our sickest and most seriously injured kids count on the hospital for specialized care they often can’t receive anywhere else. Last year, more than 100,000 patients visited the hospital, including 75,000+ visits to the emergency department and 10,000+ surgical operations. The Foundation raises money for the hospital and Child Health & Wellness Research at the University of Calgary. Learn more at
