Donors Making a Difference
We are very fortunate to live in a community that embraces the vision of giving kids healthier futures.
Thanks to the generosity and enthusiasm of people just like you, we are able to ensure our children receive the very best in family centred child health care.
HSBC Bank Canada’s support for children in their communities has spanned decades and the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation is most grateful for their dedication to the kids and families cared for at the hospital. This support has directly touched the lives of patients each day through initiatives like Patient and Family Centred Care. Exceptional programs like art and music therapy, pet visitation, playrooms and Emily’s Backyard child-minding service make the hospital a truly special place of healing for kids.
HSBC Bank Canada has also supported research initiatives like the Integrated Concussion Research Project (ICRP). Every 2 minutes in Canada, someone experiences a concussion with physical, emotional and mental side effects that can last months, even years. The ICRP is investigating core issues towards translating that knowledge into new treatments, clinical guidelines, and standardized pathways for diagnosis and management of concussion.
The Alberta Births Common Data (ABCD) project has also benefitted from HSBC’s generosity. This is an immense resource for data that allows investigators to conduct more complex and longitudinal analysis towards examining the course of early childhood development, resiliency and self-regulation. This project could have tremendous impact on areas like parent and child mental and physical health. The ultimate beneficiaries are not just individual families, but also for health professionals, policy-makers and government.
On behalf of the 97,000 children and families who rely on expert care at the hospital every year, we extend our heartfelt thanks again.
