Pediatric surgery clinic expansion
The Stollery pediatric surgery clinic is often the first place where a surgeon will meet with a patient and their family.
We're working to improve service and safety for children and families across Western Canada
As our population expands and the need continues to grow, aging infrastructure and limited space make it increasingly difficult for Hospital staff to provide the best possible care for surgical patients.
- The Stollery pediatric surgery clinic currently sees about 30,000 patient visits annually with a projected five per cent annual growth rate
- The clinic sees an average of 140 patients in an eight-hour day, which translates into 18 patients per hour, plus parents and siblings, meaning upwards of 50+ people per hour
- Children and youth come from across central and northern Alberta, and from the other three western provinces and three territories
We are committed to raising $13 million over four years to help build a new, modern pediatric surgery clinic in the neighbouring KAYE Edmonton Clinic, also located on the University of Alberta campus.
By relocating and expanding the Stollery pediatric surgery clinic, our Hospital partners will be able to finally build a state-of-the-art clinic that reflects and supports the Stollery’s internationally recognized programming. Stollery families deserve a space that provides an exceptional experience.
Improving access and patient outcomes
The expanded pediatric surgery clinic, expected to open in 2024, will:
- Allow more surgeons to see more patients and recommend surgical solutions sooner
- Create a safer environment for patients and staff
- Place a greater focus on family-centred care, including a kids’ play area in the waiting room
- Offer Stollery surgical staff members new educational and research opportunities

Internationally recognized programming
Many of the Stollery’s pediatric surgery clinic programs, including transplantation and cardiac, are internationally recognized and serve all of Western Canada.
The pediatric surgery clinic currently supports 11 different surgical sub-specialities including neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery and reconstructive/plastic surgery.
