New Edmonton Hospital & Health Campus

While COVID-19 has dominated the agenda in Alberta and around the world, we have not lost sight of all the other important work we need to do. Therefore, while COVID has changed many things, planning work on the New Edmonton Hospital continues.

AHS and the Government of Alberta envision Edmonton's new Hospital/Health Campus will be a model of modern health-care delivery; providing a comprehensive mix of health-care services, integrating acute care and emergency services with community-based care – all with a patient-centred approach.

This website has been designed to share information and to gather feedback from our many stakeholders to ensure that Edmonton's new Health Campus best meets the needs of patients, and their families.

We will be engaging you over the lifetime of this project so please visit often, or register to receive updates to your email.

Ask a Question of the New Edmonton Hospital Project Team

  • Hi I supply trades and labour within the construction sector do you know who the building project is overseeing the contract may be please

    Sian asked 2 months ago

    Thank you for your inquiry. Major government construction projects in the province are managed by Alberta Infrastructure. The new Edmonton Hospital is still in the planning phase. Once planning is complete, a competitive, public procurement process will be undertaken to hire the required contractors.

  • I have concerns with the hospital project in response to other hospital blunders that should have been caught early such as the doors too small and insufficient power at the Mazankowski Heart hospital not to mention the money that has been put towards repairs at several other hospitals that perhaps should have been new projects as the millions have been Band-Aids for other problems. Grande Prairie hospital is another massive loss in millions not to mention the time lost in getting a proper facility up there. I would hope that in the digial era we live in that it would be possible to have a virtual tour of a facility in mind for the build. Have all areas that would be using the hospital a chance to interactively go on the tour to see where there may be potential problems such as: Hallways too narrow, rooms and wash rooms too small, doors to rooms not large enough for hospital beds to go through, medical carts in hall ways, linen carts in hall ways, wheel chairs, walkers, IV poles, Cleaning carts. Insufficient power in the rooms. Addition of USB plugs in rooms, washrooms that you can fit in. Clothing closets that can hold winter coats as well. These are small things, but they add up to what is the space and is it a good use of it as well can the traffic of staff, patients, visitors, and others fit into all the spaces without having to move to the side to let someone past. I have been a patient unfortunately too many times and seen so many problems and felt there could be better ways to use certain spaces and look not only at the mechanics of space but the feel of space. I would hate to hear once the shovel is in the ground and the building starts that a major blunder is discovered and the after thought is why did we not consult those that work in these areas to better design them. Thank you for the time to read this.

    Thank you for your thoughtful inquiry and feedback. While there will likely always be unforeseen challenges, we can say that we are doing our very best to plan a facility that is high quality and functional for patients and staff alike. We will follow the best guidelines at the time of design and construction, and we are already engaging with many front-line staff and leaders, as well as working closely with patients, families, and Indigenous contributors to ensure that we are including a wide range of perspectives. Some of the planning team have toured other recently constructed facilities, but we like your idea of looking into possibly doing some virtual tours to continue to build our knowledge as we continue to plan this exciting project.

When can we expect to see positions go up in the future?

    1. We have yet to determine the staff mix, however, we are exploring the potential for Nurse Practitioners to serve at their full scope in many services.

  • Is this project still going on, or has it been scrapped?

    cdndawn asked 11 months ago

    Thank you for your question. Planning continues on the hospital and we look forward to targeted completion in 2030. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming months

  • This project completion date was pushed last year to 2030, has this changed with the increasing need of hospitals and care facilities due to current pandemic?

    Firas Hakim asked 12 months ago

    We apologize in the delayed response to your question. The targeted date of completions remains at 2030, however, we are carefully tracking COVID-19 and will be incorporating lessons-learned to ensure our facility is properly equipped to support a future pandemic.

  • How will the project be changing now we understand how important Pandemic preparedness is and how that has changed the way we do healthcare. For example the need for isolation/negative pressure units, the increase in virtual visits. What are you doing to address this in the design of this project?

    awaters asked about 1 year ago

    We have learned much during the recent pandemic and do intend to incorporate many of those elements into the design of the new hospital. We appreciate your interest in the project, as well as your question. 

  • Will the building be sustainable with renewable energy resources?

    awaters asked about 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question. Yes, we are actively exploring renewable/green energy sources and strategies.
