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.
