Stories of HopeCelebrating ten years of the Lois Hole Hospital for Women

Posted on: Sep 28, 2020

The Lois Hole Hospital for Women opened ten years ago. There have been many achievements for our community to be proud of – and many more to come.

It was in April of 2010 that the Lois Hole Hospital for Women opened its doors.

At the time, it was the first hospital in Alberta dedicated to women and women’s care.

And today it still is.

Over the years, there have been so many significant milestones. The arrival of the da Vinci robot positioned the Lois Hole as the only women’s hospital in Canada with robotic capabilities. The Allard Hereditary Breast & Ovarian Cancer Clinic was established and has expanded its capacity considerably since opening. And an additional academic research chair, the Cross-Provincial Chair in Perinatal Mental Health Research, expanded the hospital's chair total to four. 

This year we are celebrating a decade of lives saved, a decade of women’s health-focused research, and a decade of specialized care for our mothers, our grandmothers, our sisters, our daughters and our friends.

Women’s health doesn’t just affect women – it affects the families that we’re part of and the communities that we live in. Tens of thousands of rely on the Lois Hole Hospital for Women each year, and it’s donors like you who made the Lois Hole Hospital the leader it is today.

So thank you for making women’s health – and therefore, the health of our communities – a priority.

Here’s to a great ten years, and many more years to come.
