With more than 210,000 patient visits at the Stollery Children's Hospital in 2011, we know this number will continue to grow right along with the child population of Alberta. And, it's not just the children in Alberta who count on the Stollery. There are children from northern BC, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, plus Nunavut, the Yukon and the Northwest Terriorties that depend on the Stollery.
The Stollery Children's Hospital hosts the only pediatric emergency in northern Alberta, it is the referral centre for all complex pediatric heart surgeries and transplants, a major organ transplantation centre, home to Canada's largest regional program for neonatal intensive and intermediate care, and provides some of the most advanced treatments for child health issues in the country.
Through donor support, the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation continues to help send more children home each year.
