A sudden heart attack. A life-threatening brain tumour. A multi-vehicle collision.
Without warning, life can change in an instant. In these critical moments, two million British Columbians rely on Royal Columbian Hospital.
Royal Columbian offers highly specialized acute care services including trauma, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, interventional cardiology, and high-risk maternity and neonatal intensive care. No other hospital in the province provides all of these services, at this level of care, on one site.
Royal Columbian cares for our province’s most critically ill and injured. This care requires multiple medical specialists, multidisciplinary care teams and specialized equipment and technology.
Established in 1978 to raise funds for the hospital’s first CT scanner, today Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation funds research, education, and the state-of-the-art, life-saving medical equipment and technology our hospital needs to deliver the best in patient care.
Our forward-thinking donors make these leading-edge medical enhancements in complex critical care possible.
