Research Infosource released the inaugural list of Canada’s Top 40 Research Hospitals, and The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is number three. The list, based on research income generation, highlights the important role that hospitals play in Canada's research ecosystem.

SickKids, third on the list, is the number one income generating paediatric research hospital in Canada. At SickKids, research discoveries in children’s health are guided by our vision Healthier Children. A Better World. Through collaboration, SickKids brings research from the bench to the bedside and into the backyard, making SickKids a leader in children’s health research and innovation.

“I am delighted that SickKids was named as one of the Top 40 Research Hospitals in Canada,” said Janet Rossant, SickKids Chief of Research. “The ranking reflects our collective success in attracting grant funding.”

The total research income for Canada's Top 40 Research Hospitals was $2.1 billion in the 2010 fiscal year, up 7.2 per cent from 2009. According to Canada's Top 40 Research Hospitals List 2011, research income includes all internal and external government and non-government sources.
