Dr. Alf Conradi has built an impressive career advocating and championing children’s health.
A medical career that spans more than two decades as the medical director of the Stollery’s pediatric intensive care unit and section lead of the Hospital’s Critical Care program, Dr. Conradi is respected for his inclusive, forward-thinking leadership and willingness to collaborate. He’s a proven influential leader in pediatric critical care and a staunch advocate when it comes to improving and transforming child health and patient outcomes locally and internationally.
Dr. Conradi was instrumental in helping to grow and position the Stollery as Western Canada’s largest, most complex congenital heart surgical program, Western Canada’s only solid organ transplant program and Western Canada’s primary artificial heart lung technology provider. As a result, the Stollery now ranks in the top 10 per cent in North America for congenital heart surgical outcomes, and in the top third in North America for solid organ transplant outcomes.
His current role as a pediatric intensivist sees Dr. Conradi caring for some of the most acute cases in Canada where infants and children who are seriously ill require specialized, customized, high- level care.
He is the recipient of numerous prestigious teaching awards and University of Alberta appointments including clinical professor, department of pediatrics and a proud member of the Alberta Medical Association and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Dr. Conradi joined the board of trustees for the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation in 2015.
More on a personal note, Dr. Conradi’s father was a pediatrician in Edmonton with a career that spanned four decades. He is supported by his wife Trish and three sons, Carl, Nicholas and Peter. Travel, mountaineering, reading and golf — usually in the company of his family — serve to round up his free time.
