Episode Summary

BC Children’s is the only hospital in the province devoted exclusively to the care of children. That means one million kids—including some of the sickest and most seriously injured—count on the hospital for specialized care they often can’t receive anywhere else. Last year, more than 99,000 patients visited the hospital, including its acute care centre, research institute, mental health facility and other facilities.

In this episode of Philanthropy Focus, host Victoria Emslie is joined by Malcolm Berry, President & CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Malcolm shares his personal journey which inspired him to become involved in philanthropy, his quest to help every child, family and pediatric health expert, and his vision for the future of the foundation.
