G.F. MacDonald Centre for Lung Health 

The G. F. MacDonald Centre for Lung Health, located at the Edmonton General Continuing Care Centre in downtown Edmonton, has been serving Albertans with respiratory conditions for over two decades.

Mission statement

To return the person with chronic lung disease to the highest possible functional capacity and quality of life through pulmonary rehabilitation programs which include exercise, education and support.

As a Centre of Excellence focusing on pulmonary rehabilitation our objectives are to:

  • Help patients manage their disease
  • Slow the progression of the disease
  • Maintain independence
  • Improve quality of life
  • Decrease emergency visits and hospitalization days

Breathe Easy Program 

The Breathe Easy Program is a pulmonary rehabilitation program that offers health education, supervised exercise and support to people diagnosed with chronic lung disease.  A pulmonary function test is required and a thorough pre-program assessment is done with each participant prior to their enrollment into the program. The program is funded through Alberta Health Services and is available in many rural locations in central and northern Alberta. For additional information on the G. F. MacDonald Centre for Lung Health, contact the Centre directly.
