Stop the spread of germs

  • For the safety of our patients and residents, 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, at Killam Health Centre.

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.
