So much can be accomplished when community works together.

Edmonton is the only major city in Canada without a hospital that is built to care for children. The Stollery Children’s Hospital serves children and families from every corner of our province and beyond - all within the walls of a general hospital. That’s why we’re asking you to use your voice to help us build a new children’s hospital. We can better serve the diverse health and safety needs of our children if we hear more from everyone.

The Stollery Children's Hospital has been serving the children and families of Alberta for more than 20 years.

Bob and Shirley Stollery donated the seed money to build a children's hospital to serve the Edmonton area. Despite a successful fundraising campaign by the Northern Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation, it was not economically viable to build a free-standing hospital at that time. Consequently, the Stollery Children's Hospital was set up within the University of Alberta Hospital and now has over 300,000 annual patient visits.

The Stollery Children's Hospital team works across three locations.

The Stollery Children's Hospital is home to the only pediatric emergency department in northern Alberta, the David Schiff Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the Hiller Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, the Labonte Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit and many more spaces that house the Stollery's world-class care. The Stollery Children's Hospital also has programs and services at other sites. This includes the 69-bed Stollery Philip C. Etches Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), located at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, and the six-bed Stollery NICU at the Sturgeon Community Hospital. Currently, Children's Mental Health beds are not located at the Stollery Children's Hospital.

The Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation conducts its work from the place currently known as Edmonton - our land acknowledgement can be found below.

The Stollery is home to the most specialized children’s health care in Western Canada - it’s the hub for pediatric heart surgery and a national leader in organ transplantation.

However, the Stollery is the only children’s hospital of its size in North America that’s woven into an adult health-care facility. Just 236 beds are serving over half a million kids out of a building that wasn’t built for the job. As Alberta grows rapidly, more kids will rely on the Stollery and we cannot fail them. We need a single site that provides world-class pediatric health care for our children, and we need it now.
