LEADING THE WAY

By the numbers

Since 1963, donors to the University Hospital Foundation have supported every corner of care at the University of Alberta Hospital, which includes the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute and the Kaye Edmonton Clinic, operating within Alberta Health Services.

In 2018–2019 — our best year ever — we raised over $40 million, advancing patient care in areas ranging from brain and cardiac to urology and the Emergency Department.

Research & Innovation

In 2018–2019, more than $8.4 million was distributed to research projects and competitions, including potentially game-changing work on Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and obesity, and further research on Canada’s first Stroke Ambulance.

All stats are from the 2018/19 fiscal year unless otherwise stated
