South Health Campus Fun Run in Calgary

This family fun event is being held to help fund programs, equipment and education within South Health Campus. This 5k or 10k run/walk takes place throughout the neighbourhood of Auburn Bay on Saturday, September 10th, with start and finish at the South Health Campus. In just two years the event raised more than $54,000 and has supported staff development, programs and unit priorities at South Health Campus!

One of the priorities at the South Health Campus that you can help support at this year’s event:

South Health Campus Emergency Pediatric Pod

The South Health Campus ED plays a crucial role in providing high quality emergency care for tens of thousands of Albertans every year. The addition of an Emergency Pediatric Pod will have an immediate effect for those accessing care at SHC. Plans for the Emergency Pediatric Pod include six private beds and two sub-waiting rooms. A six-bed pod will provide two more pediatric beds than the current space, helping to decrease wait times for pediatric patients and provide quicker access to their initial physician assessment. Furthermore, the four beds currently used for pediatric patients will be open to adult patients, helping to improve access and decrease wait times for all emergency patients at SHC.
