ABOUT PETER LOUGHEED CENTRE

Peter Lougheed Centre serves Calgary’s growing and diverse population in the city’s north east. It is home to one of the busiest emergency rooms and a growing number of specialty and surgical services. The hospital has one of the best vascular surgery programs and is a training ground for anterior hip replacement surgery and one-day knee replacements for surgeons across Western Canada.

Named after Alberta’s Premier (1971-1985), Peter Lougheed, the Centre has been continuously growing to keep up with the city’s demands. As the only hospital accessible by train, the Centre provides care to many of the city’s vulnerable and has unique partnerships with a number of agencies across Calgary.

Supporting frontline care

Health care heroes continue to care for us in our greatest time of need. Your donation will help our care teams as they remain tirelessly committed to ensure that every person receives the best care they need when they need it.

For patients waiting, the need is critical!

Every day counts for patient’s waiting for surgery. As the hospital’s ICU needs delay surgeries for patients, it means that they need to be ready to come back better than ever for every patient dealing with the uncertainty, pain and effects caused by waiting.

"We could not let the compassion and love of Dean's care team go unnoticed. If it wasn't for them, and the support they gave to me and my boys during this time, we wouldn't have Dean with us here today."
