Welcome to the South Health Campus
An invitation to learn more about Alberta’s newest health-care facility
proud to introduce you to the South Health
Campus, Alberta’s newest health-care facility.
In January 2013, a number of new programs and services opened at the Campus, including the Emergency Department, which operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Others were Mental Health Emergency Services, Pulmonary
Diagnostics, Cardiac Diagnostics, the Bone
and Joint Cast Clinic and the Rapid Access Unit.
Since September, 39 clinics and services have opened at
the Campus. More units will open in six-week waves
from now until the fall, when the Campus will become
fully operational (see the list on the inside back cover).
The South Health Campus is more than a hospital.
It’s a place where people can find health information,
participate in active living programs and work with a variety
of health-care professionals to set and reach their health
and wellness goals.
Here, health care is keenly focused on four organizational
pillars: collaboration, innovation, wellness and patient and
family centred care. These pillars are also woven into our
culture and are shaping how we work with patients and their
families and with one another. On the following pages, you’ll
find many examples of that culture and how we’re changing
and improving health care in Alberta.
Thousands of people have contributed to the planning,
building and operation of the Campus, each bringing ideas
and insight to our vision. In particular, our Citizens Advisory
Team has brought the voices and experiences of patients
and families to the table, giving health-care professionals
a greater understanding of the journey through illness
and injury. In the same vein, our Spirit Committee is giving
employees an opportunity to create a sense of community
that is inspirational, values diversity and allows each of
them to reach their fullest potential.
Through such efforts, we’re better able to deliver on our
ultimate vision: to provide a patient-focused, quality health
system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.
We share this vision with Alberta Health Services employees
and physicians across the province.
On behalf of everyone at the South Health Campus,
I invite you to learn more about our newest facility by
