Institute Presentation

The Royal Alexandra Hospital is one of the largest inborn units in Canada, delivering approximately 5000 babies per year. The neonatal intensive care unit at the Royal Alexandra is a state-of-the-art NICU with 60 level III and level II beds having ~1200 admissions annually. Our prime interest is in the high-risk perinate which involves perinatal collaboration with the Maternal/Fetal Medicine Program located at the Royal Alexandra Hospital. All premies <32 weeks in northern Alberta are admitted to this unit.

The Neonatal Research Laboratory at the Royal Alexandra Hospital has a long history in multicentre clinical trials including the surfactant studies and inhaled nitric oxide therapy in which we were the lead coordinating centre as well as various trials launched by the Canadian Neonatal Network in which we are the active collaborative centre. We have great success in patient recruitment, data collection for acute hospitalization outcome and in long-term neurodevelopment outcome (Bayley Scales of infants Development) at 18-24 m in our Neonatal Follow-up Clinic at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital.
