The Adult Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at St Paul’s Hospital had its beginnings in 1979 as the first “stand alone” adult CF clinic in North America.
At that time the clinic had only 20 adult patients aged 18 to 28 years old. Today the clinic is thriving with approximately 270 CF adults ranging in age from 18 years old to 80 years old, as well as a dedicated team of CF healthcare providers.
Since its inception in 1979, the Adult Cystic Fibrosis Clinic clinic has thrived in our St. Paul’s Hospital location, supported by a strong team of dedicated CF health care providers.
