Designed to feel more like a home than a hospital, the Edson Healthcare Centre (EHC) is a full service rural healthcare facility located in the Canadian Rockies foothills. The Centre significantly improves both access and quality of care in the community by consolidating services for community health and wellness, primary care, and acute care. EHC includes emergency, diagnostic imaging and laboratory, surgical suites, inpatient care units, ambulatory care, long term care, and a physicians’ clinic.
With the windows, the natural light and the view of nature, it actually advances one's overall health, and the science is there to support it. So it’s impressive when you can actually use physical infrastructure to support health and to get people healthier quicker.
Dr. Kevin Worry, North Zone Medical Director for Alberta Health Services
