Royal Columbian Hospital (RCH) is a provincial and regional referral hospital providing the highest level of trauma, cardiac, neurosciences, high-risk maternity and neonatal intensive care to the most seriously ill and injured patients in British Columbia. RCH is also a teaching hospital and a UBC Clinical Academic Campus.
RCH is the only hospital in the province to have cardiac, trauma, neurosciences, high-risk maternity and a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) all on one site.
Building on a strong tradition of caring and community support, Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation (RCHF) was established in 1978 to raise funds for the hospital’s first CT Scanner. For more than thirty years, the mission of RCHF has been to raise money to help the hospital save lives, restore health and provide comfort to seriously injured and ill patients of all ages.
Today, RCHF 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 RCH.
Thousands of individuals, businesses, community groups and foundations in surrounding communities and across the region provide generous support to help RCHF achieve its vision — to inspire giving and grow funding so patients have access to the best in health care at Royal Columbian Hospital.
