About The Stollery

The Stollery Children’s Hospital is home to more than 640 physicians and more than 670 multidisciplinary staff in allied health disciplines, all dedicated to providing children with the best health care in Canada. With 133 beds, the Stollery Children’s Hospital provides services to one of the largest health regions in the world. As Capital Health’s primary acute care centre for children, the Stollery is also home base for the Regional Child Health Program. Numerous specialty services are provided here, including pediatric and neonatal intensive care and pediatric emergency.

Funds raised by the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation help make our hospital a leader in Canada in many areas. The Stollery Children’s Hospital is Canada’s largest children’s heart transplant centre, Western Canada referral centre for pediatric heart surgery, and a national leader in organ transplantation. The hospital was the first in the west to have an ECMO (Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation) program — a last resort, life-saving device that acts as a child’s external heart and lungs.

The Stollery has a reputation for leading-edge medical innovation in many areas. Stollery biomedical engineers and technicians hold the patent on the SAINT (sub-arctic intelligent neonatal transport), a mini intensive care unit that safely transfers critically ill infants in sub-zero temperatures. Surgical advances in epilepsy have brought national and international recognition, and the neurosurgery team is making huge strides in treatment of children with brain and spinal problems.
