Royal Columbian Hospital is a leading critical care hospital, serving a population of more than 1.8 million people — one in three British Columbians.
Providing the highest level of care to some of the province’s most critically ill and injured, Royal Columbian Hospital is the only hospital in BC with trauma, cardiac, neurosciences, high-risk maternity and neonatal intensive care on one site.
Building on a strong tradition of caring and community support, Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation was established in 1978 to raise funds for the hospital’s first CT Scanner. Since then, thousands of individuals, businesses, community groups and foundations have provided generous support each year to help fight for British Columbians in their most critical moments.
