Stollery Pediatric Rheumatology Clinic Print Page
The Stollery Pediatric Rheumatology Clinic is located at the Stollery Children’s Hospital (within the University of Alberta Hospital) on unit 2E3. The clinic is located on the second floor of the main hospital (you will see the blue “Oilers” clinic). Patients must be referred to this clinic, usually from another physician.
If you need to cancel or reschedule, please contact the Stollery Pediatric Clinic Central Booking line at least 24 hours prior to your appointment: 780-248-5555 (extension 2)
In order to timely access to care for all the children we serve in Western Canada, we must be able to reach you to confirm your attendance to this appointment prior to the appointment date. If this is not possible, this appointment will be cancelled and offered to another waiting family. Approximately 3-5 days before appointment date, you will receive an automated call asking you to confirm the appointment; please follow the prompts. We leave voicemails whenever possible.
Please note that multiple cancellations, no-shows, and/or unconfirmed appointments may result in the care of your child being returned to your referring doctor.
Prior to your appointment, you may also receive a phone call from the Registration Team at the University of Alberta Hospital to verify your demographic information. This process is to ensure that we have your child’s most up-to-date information.
On the Day of Your Appointment:
Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment, to give yourself time to find parking and the clinic. When you and your child arrive, please check in at the front desk (have your Alberta health card ready). You will then wait in the waiting room until you are called by one of the nurses. Your child’s height, weight, and blood pressure will be checked. Your physician cannot guarantee your appointment if you are more than 15 minutes late.
- A list of all the medications and dosages your child is currently taking.
- A pair of shorts for your child to wear for the examination.
- Your child’s Alberta Health Care card and identification.
- The completed Patient History Form that will be mailed to you.
If this is your first time seeing a Pediatric Rheumatologist, the appointment will take approximately 1 hour.
Please note: The LRT stops near the main entrance of the Edmonton Clinic and is an excellent alternative transportation option.

- There is also underground public parking located on level 0, entrance off 114 Street. This parkade is open for incoming cars from 6:00 am until 9:00 pm, 7 days a week.
Once you have parked, follow directions to get to the main hospital (Walter McKenzie) and walk or take the elevators to the second floor of the hospital. The clinic is located just above the main hospital cafeteria.
