AHS strives to create an environment that highly values diversity and welcomes and respects people’s contributions. An environment where everyone, including patients, families, healthcare providers, physicians and volunteers feel safe, healthy and valued. Creating safer and more welcoming healthcare increases the quality of care and experience we offer to everyone. We provide this safer environment by ensuring that how we work together with patients, clients, families and each other is guided by our core values – compassion, accountability, respect, excellence and safety.
Our work takes place on historical and contemporary Indigenous lands, including the territories of Treaty 6, Treaty 7 & Treaty 8 and the homeland of the Métis Nation of Alberta and 8 Métis Settlements. We also acknowledge the many Indigenous communities that have been forged in urban centres across Alberta.
