Lois Hole Hospital for Women
The Lois Hole Hospital for Women provides expert patient care for women of all ages and in all stages of life.
The Lois Hole Hospital for Women offers comprehensive, high-risk obstetrical and maternal care and provides surgical treatment of ovarian, cervical and other gynecological cancers. We are a Canadian leader in new treatments for urogynecologic and pelvic floor disorders and we are proud to place a special focus on the needs of maturing women.
The Lois Hole Hospital also provides clinical-based, innovative research in mental health that is setting new standards in the treatment and care of women with anxiety and depression.
The hospital serves as the centre of excellence for women's health in Canada's northwest and strives to meet the growing demands for women’s health services in central and northern Alberta.
Having a dedicated women's hospital is not only unique, it's incredibly valuable for research.
The Lois Hole Hospital for Women consolidates specialized services for women under one roof, improving accessibility and quality of care for all those who walk through its doors. The Lois Hole Hospital for Women has also been designed as a place of comfort that includes natural lighting, bright open spaces, and attractive art to make patients and their families as welcome as possible.
My hope is that when people come to this new hospital and see my name they are going to have a little extra hope-that real uplifting hope-that things will turn out okay.
In addition to providing the pinnacle of patient-centred care for women, education and communication also play key roles in the Lois Hole Hospital for Women. Innovative endeavours include a Health Resource Centre, filled with multimedia resources on health and wellness for patients and their families. Telehealth, a video-conferencing technology that promotes collaboration and minimizes travel for patients and health care workers allowing for an international network of information and knowledge. The hospital is also home to Western Canada’s very first simulation centre dedicated to women’s health where important true-to-life training takes place for physicians, nursing students and other health professionals.
