St Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver was founded in 1894, at the height of the Klondike Gold Rush, by a religious order called the Sisters of Providence, with the pledge of providing compassionate care for everyone in need.
Today, the hospital is an acute academic and research hospital with thriving cardiology and pathology departments. The ER department is especially busy as the hospital receives all the major trauma in the city, in addition to many alcohol, drug and HIV related problems. The hospital provides quaternary, tertiary and secondary care.
Every year, St. Paul’s provides care to more than 380,000 patients from throughout British Columbia – including many of the province’s most vulnerable and marginalized populations. A renowned teaching hospital with a strong research focus, St. Paul’s is recognized provincially, nationally and internationally for its work in the areas of heart disease, kidney disease, nutritional disorders, HIV/AIDS and the care of the disadvantaged.
