Update to Designated Family/Support Person and Visitor Access

Covenant Health acknowledges the social nature of care and the role of family as an integral dimension of the patient and resident experience. Therefore, at Covenant Health there is a presumption in favour of family presence as the standard of care.

Exceptions are necessary when patient, resident and staff safety, quality, privacy and other factors determine limitations.

Refer to the Designated Family/Support Person and Visitor Policy for more information about access and visitation.

Parking

Our Founders

The Killam Health Centre was opened in November 1963 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of London, Ontario.  The Sisters were firmly entrenched in the community, and they adapted their services to meet the changing health needs of Killam.

In 2003, the Sisters left Killam and the Centre was operated by the Alberta Catholic Health Corporation until 2009, when the Centre became part of Covenant Health. Although the physical presence of the Sisters of St. Joseph has left the building, their influence is always present in the compassionate and loving care that is delivered to patients at the Killam Health Centre today.

Today, the Killam Health Centre has five acute-care beds, 45 long-term care beds and five beds with other designations. The Centre is currently being redeveloped to convert the long-term care area into a Campus of Care that will better meet the needs of residents. The redevelopment is expected to be complete in 2018.
