EDMONTON – The Lois Hole Hospital for Women today celebrates five years of providing a wide range of health services for women of all ages, including high-risk obstetrics, specialized gynecology and women’s surgery.
The Alberta Health Services facility – located within the Royal Alexandra Hospital – has become a Western Canadian leader in women’s health since opening on April 8, 2010.
“We are proud of the advances we’ve made in the past five years,” says Joanna Pawlyshyn, Senior Operating Officer of the Royal Alexandra Hospital. “Not only do our staff provide our patients with the right care in the right place, but they also keep the Lois Hole Hospital for Women at the cutting edge of women’s health.”
The facility’s advances and accomplishments include:
Many of the hospital’s achievements were made possible through the support of the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation.
“Community support builds great hospitals,” says Andrew Otway, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation. “We are so proud to reach this milestone and we are grateful to the donors in our community who continue to support excellence in women’s health at the Lois Hole Hospital for Women.”
The hospital was made possible through more than $20 million in donations to the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation towards campaigns for the Lois Hole Hospital for Women and its larger home, the Robbins Pavilion.
The Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation inspires community support for the Royal Alexandra Hospital and its initiatives of excellence, including the Lois Hole Hospital for Women. The foundation empowers compassionate, innovative patient care through leading-edge education, research, technology and facility enhancements.
