Dr. Allison Eddy, Chief of Pediatrics at BC Children’s Hospital, has been named the hospital’s inaugural Hudson Family Hospital Chair in Pediatric Medicine.

This endowed chair, the first of its kind at BC Children’s Hospital, was made possible thanks to the incredible generosity and vision of the Hudson family. The family’s support will give Dr. Eddy and her successors the funds and the ability to attract top medical talent and improve patient care, research and safety. The chair ensures the Chief of Pediatrics has the flexibility to meet the changing health needs of BC’s sick and injured children for generations to come. Dr. Eddy’s leadership in pediatric medicine, history of setting high standards of excellence in care and treatment, and her expertise as a mentor make her an outstanding choice for the chair.
