The physicians and staff of the Northern Alberta Vascular Centre (NAVC) are dedicated to providing care for those in need across northern Alberta and our neighbours. The Northern Alberta Vascular Centre located at the Grey Nuns Hospital provides all inpatient and outpatient vascular care to a population of 2.3 million in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and the Territories. The program attracts top surgical specialists in the field and performs about 2,300 procedures a year. This good work is performed under the aegis of Covenant Health in partnership with Alberta Health Services. The Northern Alberta Vascular Centre is a vital part of Covenant Health and holds true to Covenant Health values and continuing the healing ministry of Jesus.
Vascular disease affects many different groups for many different reasons, raising unique challenges for patients and their families. Any surgery or procedure can potentially be a life-changing event. Patients from communities that are difficult to reach or have limited resources can present difficulties in getting medical care, both in the hospital and in the community.
We understand this at NAVC, and we will work with you and your families to understand your unique situations. Our team, comprised of a dedicated core of surgeons, a strong rehabilitation team, compassionate and informed nursing staff, extensive physician coverage and dedicated pharmacy support, is committed to working with those affected and their families and loved ones to provide the best possible care and the best possible outcomes.
We are called to continue the healing ministry of Jesus by serving with compassion, upholding the sacredness of life in all stages, and caring for the whole person—body, mind and soul.
Inspired by our mission of service, we will be leaders and partners in transforming health care and creating vibrant communities of health and healing.
As a Catholic organization, we are committed to serving people of all faiths, cultures and circumstances, according to our Values:
