Five years of possibilities become reality

An examination room in the Teck Acute Care CentreWhen BC Children’s Hospital opened the new Teck Acute Care Centre (Teck ACC) in fall 2017, it was a “game-changer”—a state-of-the-art facility designed to transform how health care is provided to children across BC. Five years later, Teck ACC has exceeded expectations, creating a campus of care for the over one million patients and families it serves from across the province, supported generously by donors.

What happens within the walls of Teck ACC each day is changing and saving lives. It was designed so the expert
medical staff could provide the best care in a purpose-built, healing environment. When COVID-19 struck, Teck ACC was ready—its design helped ensure staff could safely continue to care for patients, including the most vulnerable.

Teck ACC is an example of what is possible with the dedication and commitment of our generous donors, hospital and government partners. We are grateful and honoured that the community came together to ensure BC has a world-class facility to treat and heal kids.

Thanks to your vision, passion and generosity a new era of possibility has been enabled that created a legacy for the
province and most importantly, the children and families who rely on BC Children’s when they need it most.
