The heart of Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children is rooted in the strength of families and their children with developmental conditions and disabilities.
We provide specialized assessment, diagnostic and intervention services for children who live in British Columbia.
“We passionately believe in supporting families and kids to achieve whatever it is they want to achieve,” says Dianne Cameron, Senior Director.
Sunny Hill is a part of BC Children’s Hospital, but our building is located 20 minutes away in a residential neighbourhood in southeast Vancouver. Our quiet location is easy to access and is surrounded by lots of green space.
As one family member said, “Sunny Hill feels like home – there is great warmth there.” Many of the families and children we serve are at the beginning of a new and different life due to an unexpected diagnosis or accident.
Most of our services are delivered through outpatient areas, and our inpatient rehabilitation unit is for limited stays for children who require intensive rehabilitation therapies. Our staff members are committed to respecting that families know their children best and to partnering with families to support them during transitions in their lives.
“We strive to support a child’s community, so that kids are successful when they go home,” adds Dianne. Our future includes continually reaching beyond our walls to share specialized developmental pediatric and rehabilitation information with our partners - this includes families, schools and home communities.
We feel honoured to be a small part of a family journey, and we believe in unlimited possibility for the children that we serve. At Sunny Hill, we are a small centre with a big heart.
