About Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation:

Tracing its history back to 1978, when the Northern Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation began to advocate for a children's hospital in Edmonton, the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation (SCHF) supports the Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta. The new hospital was opened in 2001, funded by a generous donation from Bob and Shirley Stollery. In order to transform children’s healthcare SCHF states that it raises funds to support the hospital, educates communities about the hospital’s needs, and reports the impact of donors’ donations. In F2018, the hospital had 293,423 patient visits and performed 11,333 surgeries. Stollery Children’s Hospital has one of the largest catchment areas of children’s hospitals in Canada, covering 400,000 km2. Forty-four percent of inpatients, in F2018, were from outside the greater Edmonton Area.

As stated in its 2018 annual report, the Foundation granted $13.3m to the hospital to support research ($4.1m), equipment and facilities ($3.9m), training ($721k), and programs ($1.0m). The additional $3.6m were donor-directed funds used for specific purposes requested by donors.

In F2018, SCHF invested over $753,000 in the Awasisak Indigenous Health program, which is expanding its outreach programs to more Indigenous communities across northern Alberta. SCHF also gave over $1 million to help make Edmonton the home of Canada’s first Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program training centre. In F2018, as a result of $3.1m in grants, a new Stollery pediatric cardiac intensive care unit (PCICU) at the Mazankowski Heart Institute in Edmonton was opened. The new PCICU has 9 room, 16 beds and will service an expected 500 visits each year.
