A Bit of History...

On October 7, 2008, 16 Catholic health facilities across Alberta joined together under a common mission, and a quest to be of greater service. As Covenant Health, we build on a 150-year legacy of compassionate care. Today, Covenant Health is Canada’s largest Catholic healthcare organization, serving 13 communities at 19 facilities across Alberta.

Our founding congregations responded to the needs of pioneer communities and established the foundation of our healthcare system across the province. Through the years, there have been many changes in Alberta and many milestones in our healing ministry. As we look to the future, we are inspired by these courageous and resourceful women and their example of caring for all in need—body, mind and soul.

Covenant Health is accredited through Accreditation Canada, emphasizing accountability, performance measurement and effective governance, we have received the highest rating possible—Accreditation with Exemplary Standing.

On February 28, 2011, the Covenant Health Medical Staff Bylaws were implemented, as endorsed by the Alberta Government Minister of Health and Wellness, Honourable Gene Zwozdesky. This legally merged the medical staffs of 10 former health regions and 18 facilities into a single body creating the Covenant Health Medical Staff.
