100 years from now, what we know to be today’s modern healthcare system will be a distant memory. ACH would like to provide tomorrow’s generation with a glimpse at the myriad of experiences and insights we have today, as well as our hopes and dreams for the future. The hospital is creating a time capsule to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Alberta Children’s Hospital, to be opened in 2122.
There are two themes for the time capsule:
First - A snapshot of healthcare as we know it – a chance for future caregivers to hold a moment of time in their hands and feel what it was like to walk into ACH in 2022. From personal messages to hand drawn pictures, or a keepsake you find personally meaningful, patients, families, staff, physicians, and volunteers are asked to submit something that encapsulates the ACH we all know and love today, for future generations to enjoy tomorrow.
Second - What do you think pediatric healthcare will look like in 2122? What are your hopes and dreams for future generations of children and youth?
You are welcome to choose one or both themes.
To submit an item for the time capsule, for either theme, please email: ACH100@ahs.ca. All written submissions should be 400 words or less. The deadline is December 31 2022.
