Edmonton, Alberta, April 14 2022— Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation President & CEO Mark Korthuis will speak at the upcoming Alberta Technology Symposium to highlight the hospital foundation’s recent move to become the first Alberta health care foundation to accept cryptocurrency donations and the potential this unlocks for one of the largest rehabilitative hospitals in North America.

In partnership with The Giving Block, the hospital foundation now welcomes digital currency donations like Bitcoin and Ethereum, allowing it to unlock a more diverse donation pool to support the important research and rehabilitative care the hospital provides.

The Alberta Technology Symposium takes place April 20 and 21. It unites leaders in the province’s disruptive technology sector, spotlighting emerging companies, organizations and solutions. Korthuis will join a panel of experts on April 21, which will examine the potential cryptocurrency and blockchain technology has to alter a variety of industries, including those within the non-profit sector such as the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation. In particular, Korthuis will highlight the opportunities and benefits cryptocurrency donations hold for the health foundation and non-profit sectors.

“Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital is world-renowned for the future-focused, technology-enabled care it provides to patients who are recovering from injury or living with chronic conditions,” says Korthuis. “As the first Alberta health foundation to accept digital currencies like Bitcoin, the Glenrose Hospital Foundation is blazing a trail and opening up new possibilities for donors around the world to support our important work.”
