Temporary changes to access at Hardisty Health Centre

June 10, 2024

HARDISTY - Patients and visitors to the Hardisty Health Centre will be temporarily unable to access the facility through the main entrance as work starts on a flooring renovation project.

Beginning tomorrow (June 11), the site's main entrance will be closed. Access to the site, including to the emergency department, for patients and visitors will temporarily be through the EMS garage, which will be marked. Directional signage will be in place to assist with wayfinding.

The $1.1-million project involves installation of new flooring installed throughout the main entrance, which will ensure the site continues to meet provincial continuing care accommodation standards. Funding for the project come from the Government of Alberta's Infrastructure Maintenance Program (IMP).

The temporary access changes are expected to be in place until July 12.

Renovations will not impact the delivery of services or programs at the health centre. The emergency department will continue to operate, as will the laboratory, diagnostic imaging and outpatient programs, such as physiotherapy. The Hardisty Medical Clinic will also continue to operate as usual while the flooring work is underway.

Alberta Health Services thanks the community, patients and our care teams for their patience and understanding as this work is completed.
