The Red Deer Regional Health Foundation is elated by last week’s announcement by Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the Government of Alberta that a redevelopment and expansion of the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre is back on the Facility Infrastructure Capital Plan for 2018.

While the timeline for the approval for the redevelopment has yet to be announced, the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to develop a capital fundraising plan for when that day comes.

“This is exciting news,” says Red Deer Regional Health Foundation Chief Executive Officer Manon Therriault. “We have been looking forward to this for a long time.”

The Chair of the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation Board says the announcement is the direct result of collaboration and transparent planning between the parties and brings Central Alberta another step closer to the critically required expansion of healthcare services in Red Deer.

“We eagerly await hearing from AHS and the Government of Alberta for the approval of the redevelopment of the hospital and the expansion of healthcare services for Central Albertans, including the delivery of enhanced cardiac care,” says RDRHF Board Chair Robert Bilton.

The Red Deer Regional Health Foundation has been enhancing healthcare excellence in Central Alberta since 1994 by raising funds to provide state-of-the-art medical equipment and services. With the continued support of Central Albertans, the Foundation will maintain its vision of “World class healthcare for Central Albertans.”
