Every child is healthy and able to fulfill their hopes and dreams.
To transform child health through excellence in philanthropy.
BC Children’s is the only hospital in the province devoted exclusively to the care of children. That means one million kids—including some of the sickest and most seriously injured—count on the hospital for specialized care they often can’t receive anywhere else. Last year, more than 99,000 patients visited the hospital, including its acute care centre, research institute, mental health facility and other facilities.
A global leader in child health
Experts at BC Children’s Hospital are world leaders in pediatric health care and are widely known for the specialized care, innovative therapies and ground-breaking research discoveries they’re leading to improve the health outcomes of children across the province and beyond.
BC Children’s Hospital is now one of the few facilities in North America with an acute care centre, mental health facility, research institute, and rehabilitation and developmental assessment centre—all on one single campus. With this newly integrated campus, our ability to directly translate research discoveries into clinical care—and vice versa—has never been greater.
BC Children’s also serves the largest geographic region of any children’s hospital in North America—almost a million square miles. The hospital offers travelling and virtual outreach clinics, as well as an expanded online telehealth program, to ensure more kids can get the care they need closer to home.
For these reasons and many others, BC Children’s Hospital has consistently ranked among the top pediatric hospitals in the world for four years in a row, from 2019 to 2022.
