The University Hospital Foundation’s 2023 Festival of Trees, presented by Landmark Homes, is raising $2.4 million in support of not one but two areas of innovation at the University of Alberta Hospital (UAH).
Practice makes perfect
With a new, state-of-the-art Simulation (SIM) Centre, healthcare teams will have the opportunity to practice every aspect of patient care with the most innovative technology available – improving patient safety, enhancing skills and teamwork, and providing invaluable opportunities to develop and test new research, medical devices and procedures prior to use in the healthcare environment.
Health and wellness for all
Picture this: a calming space for family and friends to gather, meet with healthcare team members, and get much-needed information about their loved-ones in hospital; an inclusive space where all cultures are celebrated and welcomed; a transformational space that will advance patient and family-centered care for the nearly one million visitors the UAH sees each year and provide a space for mental wellness for the 10,000 staff, physicians and volunteers who work there. That’s the new Fourth Floor Atrium at the UAH.
Shake It Up!
The theme of the 2023 Festival of Trees, presented by Landmark Homes, is Shake It Up! No toy captures the magic and awe of the holidays quite like a snow globe. That’s why this year, as family, friends and communities come together for our annual celebration, the University Hospital Foundation invites you to shake it up, have fun and help support the incredible work of the medical teams at the University of Alberta Hospital.
Your support makes a difference
The Festival of Trees has raised over $25 million for critically important causes at the University of Alberta Hospital site. From bringing incision-free brain surgery technology to Edmonton to expanding intensive care for cardiac patients, your support has impacted patients from head-to-toe.
