About BC Children's Hospital

BC Children's Hospital is the province's only full-service, pediatric acute care hospital and serves the 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. Last year, over 86,000 children made more than 234,000 visits to BC Children's Hospital.

In 2016-17 BC Children's Hospital Foundation received donations from more than 119,000 individuals, businesses and community groups and had consolidated revenues totalling a record-breaking $101.9 million. Funds raised by the foundation are used to support BC Children's Hospital, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and the BC Children's Hospital Research Institute.
