HEALTH
MATTERS

SO LET'S NOT
PUT IT AT RISK

header-image

Our 25,000 health-
care professionals
understand Alberta’s
health-care system.

Whether we’re working in the labs, in diagnostic imaging, in emergency medicine, in therapy, in addictions or any of the 240 professional disciplines to which we belong, we spend every day of our working lives caring for you.

We’re there for you in your scariest, hardest and happiest moments. We’re there for you when you get injured, we’re there for you when you get sick, we’re there for you when you’re born and we’re there for you when you or your loved ones pass on.

It’s because we care about caring for you that we’re talking now about the future of Alberta’s health-care system.

We'll be watching.

We watched the election results come in and we’ll keep watching the government today and the day after that because we need to make sure they take care of Albertans. We’ll be watching for the government to help us do our jobs to provide great patient care, to protect and invest in public health care and to work as hard as we do for the people we take care of every day.

Because nothing matters more than your health.

Health matters
to all of us.
You know that
and we know that.

Good job. You came across really good in the media.

Go Mike!

Why didn't HSAA have such a powerful response to the NDP shredding energy contracts with the province and costing the tax payers hundreds of millions in fine? Oh wait. The NDP were your friends. So its ok to smash contracts as long as you don't like the person doing it. Makes sense.
