As the major urban centre, Grande Prairie is the regional hub for health and medical services in Northwestern Alberta.
Grande Prairie is home to many health services such as emergency and ongoing medical care, paramedical services, labs, and diagnostic imaging, bringing the best of healthcare to residents of the northwest part of the province and beyond.
The new Grande Prairie Regional Hospital will help more northern patients receive specialized and complex care, closer to home and with shorter wait times. Functioning as a regional referral centre, the new hospital will provide health services to residents from all over northwestern Alberta. The new hospital is anticipated to begin accepting patients at the end of 2021.
The existing Queen Elizabeth II Hospital will continue as a health care facility, providing ambulatory primary care, outpatient mental health and community health services. The redevelopment provides an opportunity to support integrated, accessible and family-centred care.
