British Columbia Children’s Hospital is a medical facility located in Vancouver, British Columbia, and is an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority.
It specializes in health care for patients from birth to age 17. It is also a teaching and research facility for children’s medicine. The hospital also operates the Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children, which provides specialized services to children and youth with developmental disabilities aged birth to 19.
The hospital is adjacent to the B.C. Women’s Hospital & Health Centre. Previously, the two were officially a single organization and were known as the Children’s & Women’s Health Centre of British Columbia.
Working with the hospital and the community, the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation raises funds to support and enhance the delivery of pediatric care in British Columbia. The Foundation provides funding to B.C. Children’s Hospital, as well as its sister facilities, the Child & Family Research Institute and Sunny Hill Health Centre, to support research into childhood diseases, the purchase of medical equipment, and a range of child health education and training programs.
