It is the vision of the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation to create the very best women’s hospital in Canada at the Lois Hole Hospital for Women, and the partnership that has been established with the Women and Children’s Health Research Institute is critical to this vision. Evidence shows that when research and innovation are part of clinical care in a hospital, patients have better outcomes.

Women’s health is also community health. Healthy women lead to healthy families and a healthier future for all Albertans.

Thanks to buyers Full House Lottery ticket buyers the future of women's health will be different.
For generations, issues like incontinence, pelvic floor pain, depression, and even female reproductive cancers were considered less serious ‘female problems’ undeserving of comprehensive study and the development of treatment protocols. The Lois Hole Hospital for Women and the Women and Children’s Health Research Institute understand that the physiological and biological differences between men and women means metabolic responses to medication also differ.
Gone are the days when pharmaceutical trials -- exclusively using male patients – would then be modified for women simply by adjusting for height and weight differences. Women are not smaller versions of men. Research today means improved health practices tomorrow. Research today also addresses the glaring disparities that have existed for generations, in the treatment protocols for women.
