SO LET'S NOT
PUT IT AT RISK
Our 25,000 health-
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.

Because nothing matters more than your health.
to all of us.
You know that
and we know that.
