Construction of South Health Campus (SHC) began in August 2007 at Deerfoot Trail South and 196th Ave SE in Calgary. The first phase of South Health Campus will cost $1.3 billion. Alberta Health Services, Alberta Health and Wellness, Alberta Infrastructure and the SHC Citizen Advisory Team are working together on the project to identify capital needs and priorities, and ensure Albertans receive the very best health care facility.

LEED Silver

When the South Health Campus is complete, it will apply for Silver Certification in the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building program.
