Covenant Health

Innovation led by quality

Covenant Health delivers added value to your family and community by improving the path you take through Covenant Health's care journey. We are committed to providing you the right care at the right time in the right place, helping deliver your care as smoothly as possible. 

Covenant Health is actively raising the leadership and innovation bar in areas where we add value to Alberta’s and Canada’s integrated health system. 

At the heart of our larger commitment to those most vulnerable—with a special focus on seniors' care, mental health care, end-of-life care and rural health—is our vision to be of greater service to those in need with compassion, quality and innovation.

Ethics & Discernment Centre

Our commitment to ethical integrity is more than a code of conduct. It is our promise to make decisions and set standards of behaviour that support those we serve. The Ethics Centre supports health care decision makers when there is conflict or uncertainty about the “best” thing to do.  This includes supporting staff as well as patients, residents, families and loved ones.

Network of Excellence in Seniors' Health and Wellness

The Covenant Health Network of Excellence in Seniors’ Health and Wellness (NESHW) exists to build Alberta’s capacity to support seniors better. It gives seniors a voice to define what ‘better’ looks like and engages families, care professionals, academics, and communities in shaping philosophies of care; advocating for seniors’ needs; and designing, testing and spreading innovative approaches to address these needs. As part of Covenant Health, the Network evaluates ideas across the full spectrum of supports and care for seniors from independent living to acute and continuing care services. Read more about NESHW.
