The Alberta Children’s Hospital opened in Calgary, Alberta in September 2006, becoming the first free-standing pediatric facility to be built in Canada in more than 20 years.

The hospital was designed by the people who use the building the most – patients, families, physicians and staff. In 2002, architects created renderings of how the hospital could look. These drawings were brought to the hospital’s Teen Advisory Group and changed beyond recognition into a colourful, child-friendly building resembling toy building blocks. This is how the building looks today as it overlooks downtown Calgary, the Bow River and the Rocky Mountains.

The Alberta Children’s Hospital is used by patients from birth to age 18 from southern Alberta, southeastern British Columbia and southwestern Saskatchewan as multi-disciplinary teams work together to promote healing through family-centred care.
