Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation



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 Hospital offers highly specialized acute care services including:

    • Cardiac Care
    • Trauma
    • Neurosurgery
    • High-Risk Maternity & Neonatal Intensive Care.

No other hospital in the province provides all of these services, at this level of care, on one site.

Royal Columbian Hospital provides the highest level of care to the most critically ill and injured throughout British Columbia. 

Proving this level of care requires multiple medical specialists, multidisciplinary care teams, and specialized equipment and technology. Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation’s forward-thinking donors make these leading-edge medical enhancements in complex critical care possible.

We are deeply honoured when those who care about Royal Columbian choose to include Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation in their Will. In creating a lasting legacy at our hospital, you are investing in future innovation in life-saving, critical care.
