About Us
HOSPITALS : University of Alberta Hospital

The University of Alberta Hospital (UAH) is one of Canada’s leading clinical , research and teaching hospitals, treating more than 700,000 patients annually from across western and northern Canada.

Located on the University of Alberta Campus, the UAH is also home to the Stollery Children’s Hospital. This “hospital within a hospital” concept allows the two facilities to share resources and equipment while meeting the specialized needs of each patient population.

With over 650 beds, the two facilities offer a wide range of diagnostic and treatment services for both adults and children, including specialized services within cardiac sciences, neurosciences, surgery, medicine, renal, critical care, emergency and trauma care and a state-of the art burn unit.

Based at the UAH, Capital Health’s organ and tissue transplant program is recognized as a national leader in both success rates and transplant volumes. Providing support to the transplant and surgery programs is the University Hospital’s Comprehensive Tissue Centre, one of only two fully accreditated multi-tissue banks in Canada.

This is also a teaching hospital, one recognized across the country for superior research and learning opportunities. We are proud to be closely aligned with the University of Alberta Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, Faculty of Nursing and other health sciences faculties.
