The Royal Columbian Hospital (RCH) provides specialized care for cardiac services, trauma, neurosciences, high-risk maternity and neonatal intensive care for some of the most seriously ill and injured people from across British Columbia. Located at the heart of one of the fastest growing health regions in Canada, the hospital serves a population of more than 1.8 million people (one in three British Columbians).

Building on a strong tradition of caring and community support, the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation (RCHF) was established in 1978 to raise funds for the hospital’s first CT Scanner. Today, the Foundation is an independent charitable organization that raises millions of dollars each year to fund major projects, priority equipment needs, facility enhancements, research, education and innovation at Royal Columbian Hospital.
