Mission & Purpose

On October 7, 2008, 16 Catholic health care facilities across Alberta came together under a single board and administration. Today, Covenant Health has a team of more than 14,000 staff, physicians and volunteers across our sites in Banff, Bonnyville, Camrose, Castor, Edmonton, Killam, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Mundare, St. Albert, Trochu and Vegreville. Rooted in a tradition that is 150-years strong, our mission is carried out by inspired people—workers, physicians and volunteers—of all faiths, traditions and cultures who believe in the value of compassionate, holistic care. We are called to continue the healing ministry of Jesus by serving with compassion, upholding the sacredness of life in all stages, and caring for the whole person—body, mind and soul.
