Stop the spread of germs

  • For the safety of our patients, we encourage you to clean your hands when you visit. See A Guide to Clean Hands for information on protecting yourself and your loved ones.
  • If you’re sick, it's best to wait and visit your loved one when you’re feeling better. If you must visit and you’re coughing or sneezing, consider wearing a mask to protect your loved one.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and then discard the tissue. If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your upper sleeve or elbow.
  • Clean your hands frequently with soap and water or hand sanitizer, especially after coughing or sneezing.


Free visitor parking is available, including accessible parking stalls, on the south and north sides of the Bonnyville Health Centre.

Our founders

In 1917, Rev. Duclos established the first hospital in Bonnyville founded by the Women’s Missionary Society of the Presbyterian Church. As the population increased, plans were made to relocate the hospital to a new and larger site. By 1926, the new two-storey hospital opened its doors. In 1962, the Women’s Missionary Society transferred their endeavors to other charitable works and the hospital closed. That same year it resumed operation under the name of Duclos Hospital, a non-church organization known as the Duclos Hospital Society.

The St. Louis Hospital was founded by the Sisters of Charity of Notre Dame d’Evron in October of 1919. By 1955, a new wing was added with an additional 28 beds. The Sisters of Charity governed St. Louis until 1972. In 1979, a Board of Management was established and would later spark the amalgamation of the two hospitals.

With the prediction of a booming economy and both facilities needing repairs, the Board saw a need for a new facility. In May 1986, Bonnyville Health Centre opened. The hospital provides invaluable services through holistic, quality health care within a compassionate and inclusive environment. In October 2008, Covenant Health was formed when 16 Catholic health facilities in Alberta, including Bonnyville Health Centre, united.
