About BC Children's Hospital
BC Children's Hospital is the province's only full-service, pediatric acute care hospital and serves the close to one million children living in BC and the Yukon. All children who are seriously ill or injured are referred to Children's Hospital and are either treated at the hospital facility in Vancouver or, with consultation from Children's specialists, in their home community. In 2011, more than 81,000 children were treated at Children's Hospital.
In 2011-12 BC Children's Hospital Foundation received donations from more than 150,000 people and had revenues of $83 million. Funds raised by the Foundation are used to support BC Children's Hospital, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and the Child & Family Research Institute.

To date, BC Children's Hospital Foundation has received campaign donations from over 67,000 donors in more than 300 BC communities. The community has contributed in excess of $150 million to date toward the $200-million campaign.
