About University Hospital Foundation:

Founded in 1962, University Hospital Foundation (UHF) raises funds to support the University of Alberta Hospital, the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute and the Kaye Edmonton Clinic. UHF aims to advance the health of Albertans by using generosity to save and change lives. The funds are used to enhance patient care, support research, and train and educate healthcare professionals. University Hospital Foundation reports that its fundraising priorities for the University of Alberta Hospital include funds for trauma care, cardiac care, brain care, and organ and tissue transplant.

In F2015, UHF reports that it funded the creation of the Gamma Knife and 3T MRI Centre at the University of Alberta Hospital to advance brain care. UHF also funded the first stroke ambulance in Canada, aiming to reduce the wait times for stroke patients, therefore decreasing their chance of suffering from permanent disability. The Foundation has also supported medical research, contributing $5 million in seed grants to 250 peer-reviewed research projects over the last 10 years. UHF also funded the purchase of a new Fibroscan for the Gastroenterology program at the University of Alberta Hospital. This allows up to 40 patients to be scanned a day, helping to diagnose liver disease before liver failure.
