Only $5M more needed to build new B.C. Children’s Hospital

A A

The BC Children’s Hospital Foundation launched a campaign in 2008 to construct a new children’s hospital and they are very close to their $200 million campaign goal. But they still need your help!

The foundation has received campaign donations from thousands of British Columbians in 270 B.C. communities.

The hospital has outgrown its space which was designed in the 1970s. The hospital says that without a new facility, BC Children’s Hospital will be unable to take full advantage of the many benefits offered by medical technology.

The fundraising campaign will allow BC Children’s Hospital to construct a new hospital, including an Emergency Department, Diagnostics and Imaging, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Operating Rooms and patient rooms. It will also help relocate childhood development and rehab services from Sunny Hill in East Vancouver.

The relocation of childhood development and rehabilitation services from Sunny Hill Health Centre in East Vancouver to the Oak Street home of BC Children’s and Child Health BC, a BC Children’s Hospital initiative that is building pediatric care capacity throughout the province.
