Abandoned baby saved at Edmonton hospital (Christopher De Bono, St. Paul's Hospital)
A safe-haven program called Angel Cradle, operated by Covenant Health, may have saved a newborn baby’s life.
A healthy baby was dropped off at the Grey Nuns Hospital in Edmonton within the last six months under the Angel Cradle program that lets parents anonymously leave a baby in a cradle within a doorway.
Covenant Health based its program on the Angel’s Cradle program at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver. According to Providence Health Care, the Angel’s Cradle has been used twice since its inception: the first in summer of 2010; the second in the summer of 2013. Both babies were healthy.
