Full House Lottery: Dream Like a Kid Again!
Every year, Albertans look forward to two things: spring and Full House Lottery!
For more than 20 years, Full House Lottery has been a great success for the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation and their partners at the University Hospital Foundation. The combination of incredible prizes with a great cause is why Full House has become Alberta’s favourite lottery.
As usual. this year's Full House Lottery features luxurious homes, incredible cars, and fabulous vacation packages. Highlights include the amazing Early Bird Prize (a 2015 Aston Martin with a trip for two to London, England and $10,000 cash), your choice of eight of the world's best trips, a Thousands a Day giveaway, and much more. Besides making your dreams come true, this year's Full House Lottery will help make two medical dreams come true. An incredibly accurate CT scanner called the O-Arm System for the Royal Alexandra Hospital's surgical department and new, state-of-the-art dialysis technology for the University Hospital.
Every year, our Foundation is happy to report on our success stories – new medical equipment, essential healthcare research, and improvements to patient care, just to name a few. However, our success stories are really your success stories. By supporting the Royal Alexandra Hospital, our generous donors have made a tremendous impact on healthcare in our province.
In this year’s Report to the Community, you will read about such important advances at the Royal Alex such as the life-saving da Vinci robot, the new Ophthalmic Surgery Skills Centre, the Allard Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Clinic, and many others. Community support has made all of these vital programs and technology possible. And – as we look towards the future of the Royal Alex – we also know that donor support will play an important role in the construction of a new bed tower for our cherished but aging hospital.

Telehealth: Bringing the Royal Alex to the World
When you’re caring for patients from Edmonton’s inner city, it requires a different approach and a different mindset.
When someone arrives at the Royal Alexandra Hospital's Emergency Department with a broken arm, the medical team there will obviously do their best to help them. But what if someone broke their arm because of addiction or homelessness? Helping someone deal with the bigger issues that caused their broken arm will ultimately help them more than just the fracture treatment.
The challenge is that the Royal Alex sees a “revolving door” syndrome that has many patients coming back to the Emergency Department time and time again. That is what the Inner City Health and Wellness Program is all about. Our goal is that when they knock at our door, we are able to show them to the right door – to offer help with addictions, mental health conditions, brain injuries, or unstable housing.
By engaging a different approach to these high risk patients, we have the opportunity to provide them with the services that they really need. By doing things differently, we have an opportunity to find better, long-term solutions to these very significant health issues.
A gift to the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation in your will supports healthcare for the entire community.
Community support builds great hospitals and the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation receives generous donations, including bequests, from across Alberta and beyond.
Bequests and planned gifts are an inspired way to help ensure that the Royal Alexandra Hospital has the resources it needs to provide exceptional and compassionate patient care when it matters most, now and in the future.
