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.

In celebration of the hospital's 5th year in operation our Foundation was proud to create the a commemorative magazine that marks the hospital’s milestone anniversary: Hope magazine. 

Hope sustains us through illness and ill fortune. Hope allows us to dream of better days to come. And hope is what the Lois Hole Hospital for Women has been bringing to women’s health care in Western Canada for the last five years. 

In the pages of Hope, meet a trio of research chairs who are increasing the depth and breadth of women’s health care, establishing the Lois Hole Hospital for Women as a centre for excellence in clinical care and research that is second-to-none. Tour the hospital, as famous for its attention to detail as it is for its accessibility. And meet some of the clinicians, patients and donors who engage with the facility.

Stories of Hope More Than Words Can Say

The Lois Hole Hospital for Women is a centre of medical excellence with a special focus on high-risk pregnancy, labour, and delivery. High-risk pregnancy means there may be potential for early birth or a health risk to the baby. When the unthinkable happens and a woman experiences the loss of a baby, caregivers at the hospital have learned that it is very difficult for women and their support persons to explain their situations multiple times on arrival to the hospital for care.

The solution they're offering is both strikingly simple and singularly significant.
