Innovation and technology transform the delivery of health care every day. Covenant Health works alongside partners in research and government to ensure our system continues to advance and respond to developments in science, research and technology in order to provide the best possible treatment to patients. In September, 2018, two state-of-the-art operating rooms opened at the Grey Nuns Community Hospital to provide vascular patients with the most advanced Canon technology in Canada. Stroke patients at St. Mary’s Hospital in Camrose are benefiting from staff simulation training which help improve response time for stroke patients and helps ensure they get life-saving medications at the earliest opportunity.

Clinicians from around the globe come to the world-renowned Institute for Reconstructive Sciences in Medicine (iRSM) to learn the most advanced and effective techniques in jaw reconstruction and rehabilitation to restore to cancer patients their voice, their face, their ability to function and, most importantly, their dignity. The iRSM is one of only four centres around the world which conducts this kind of work. Innovation in food service delivery resulted in the creation of Covenant Cuisine at the Misericordia Community Hospital (MCH). There, patients order and receive freshly prepared meals from a menu, a marked departure from the traditional service of designated meals. The MCH is one of only six hospitals in Canada to offer this service.
