Ask a Question of the New Edmonton Hospital Project Team

  • Thank you for your comments. I am looking for information on what infrastructure, housing type and uses would best support the new hospital in the newly annexed areas south of 41st Avenue? ie. additional development including housing and employment that will support the hospital?

    Urbantown asked 5 months ago

    The proposed Neighborhood Area Structure Plan outlines areas of potential development for the properties between Ellerslie Rd to 28 Ave SW, and the proposed new Heritage Valley Trail to 127 St. It does not include planning of the property south of 41 Ave SW, nor can the New Edmonton Hospital project speak to what other development might be appropriate for surrounding neighborhoods. Thank you again for reaching out. 


  • What assistance In the form of infrastructure and new services will you be seeking from the City to support the new hospital? Ie.roadway construction, LRT extension and and planning new residential and mixed uses in the newly annexed lands south of 41sr Avenue. What type of developments work well clustered close to a hospital?

    Urbantown asked 5 months ago

    Thank you for your question. Please see our link to the City of Edmonton’s Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan (NASP) website for current status of municipal planning associated with the development.

    Please feel to contact us again if you have further questions. 

  • It was my understanding that this project was stopped by the current Government, has there been a change to this?

    Casey.EagleSpeaker asked 6 months ago

    Thank you for your question. Work continues on this project (it is the Edmonton Lab Hub project that has been cancelled).


  • I've noticed that PFAC meeting minutes have not been posted since Jan 2019. When can I expect more current minutes to be posted?

    lclee asked 7 months ago

    Thank you for your interest in the Patient and Family Advisory Council. The Patient and Family Advisory Council meetings have been on hold through the election period and have not yet resumed. Once the meetings resume, the minutes will be posted.


  • Is this hospital/campus going to be similar to the fairly new hospital/campus in Calgary?

    josan9 asked about 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question. The New Edmonton Hospital / Health Campus is currently working to develop a Clinical Service Plan – the document that will outline the medical services and programs that will be delivered in Alberta’s newest hospital. Until that plan is developed we cannot answer detailed questions, but we are excited to be designing a facility that uniquely meets the needs of Albertans, those in the Edmonton Zone, and neighbours of the site where the new facility will be built.


  • I see no mention of a satellite Pediatric area--I know we have Stollery but that area of the city has many young families. Should it not have pediatric capabilities?

    TraumaRN asked about 1 year ago

    Currently, the project is developing a Clinical Service Plan that will detail which services and programs are offered at the NEHP. This process involves examining current state of the Edmonton Zone, compiled with vast data analysis and ongoing stakeholder engagement (including with our partners at Stollery).

    Following this process, our teams will undertake a systematic, informed decision making process. Once this work is complete we will be in a better position to share more detailed information, however we have recorded your suggestion of pediatric capabilities at the NEHP and appreciate you taking time to inform this process.


  • How long it takes to build ? I am working as a frontline staff in one of the hospital . Do we able to say any suggestions about the plan / any concern we are having currently with the plan ?

    Milly Kandathil asked about 1 year ago

    Thank you for your interest in the project. The NEHP is currently in the planning phase of the project and is projected to open in 2027. As a project, we aim to deliver a world class healthcare facility and know that in order to do so, we must also engage the expertise of our front line providers through a variety of ongoing engagement. As the project moves forward, the NEHP will be reaching out to various stakeholders. We understand that in order to be successful, it is paramount we incorporate diverse perspectives to ensure we develop a facility that meets the needs of our patients, their families as well as our providers.


  • Will this site be created in collaboration with a Citizen Advisory Team like South Health Campus was in Calgary? Also, I second the question below re: having a teaching kitchen where hands-on culinary nutrition education will be provided by dietitians. I've seen this be an incredible tool in Calgary and hope that there will be the same in Edmonton :)

    kristinel asked about 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question. Recognizing our patients and families as valuable partners in health, the New Edmonton Hospital created a Patient & Family Advisory Council (PFAC) that has been engaged in the planning phase since November 2018. The PFAC meets monthly and will advise our project throughout planning, design, construction and operational aspects of this campus. We feel incredibly fortunate to have enthusiastic advisors volunteering their time to provide their expertise! In fact, we are currently looking to add more members to our committee. Should you feel interested in joining, please submit your application via the link on this website.

    Thank you for your insight into the teaching kitchen in Calgary. Your feedback has been recorded and will be explored further during future phases of planning. Currently, the team is completing a Clinical Service Plan that will outline which services and programs will be offered on the campus. Once this is complete, in depth planning will occur which is where this feedback will be explored further.


  • Will this site have a teaching kitchen where hands on and virtual culinary nutrition can be offered by primary care and clinical dietitians?

    Jmm14 asked about 1 year ago

    Thank you for your question. The New Edmonton Hospital / Health Campus is currently working to develop a Clinical Service Plan – the document that will outline the medical services and programs that will be delivered in Alberta’s newest hospital. Until that plan is developed we cannot answer detailed questions, such as whether the hospital will include a teaching kitchen. But we will keep this in mind as a suggestion as planning continues. We look forward to being able to share more information with Albertans.

  • Why was this site chosen?

    over 1 year ago

    The new state-of-the-art health campus for south Edmonton will be built near Ellerslie Road and 127 Street SW. This site was chosen because it can accommodate a health campus. Its proximity to Anthony Henday Drive and the Queen Elizabeth II highway makes it easily accessible. Current LRT planning includes expansion to the site before 2040.

  • Is this going to be a hospital, or a health centre?

    over 1 year ago

    Both - the new hospital will have 350-500 new beds, and is anticipated to have a comprehensive mix of acute, ambulatory, and primary care services that are based on community needs, including:

      Inpatient Units

      Emergency Department

      Rehabilitation Services

      Obstetrical Services

      Diagnostic Treatment

      Ambulatory Clinics
