Putting Patients at the Centre for Patient Care
Celebrating its opening in late 2012, The Kaye Edmonton Clinic supports the emphasis on putting patients at the centre of care at the University Hospital site by consolidating specialized, outpatient clinical care and streamlining access to numerous services and specialists.
The influence of the clinic is far beyond Edmonton. People who come from a significant distance will have the potential to do many things on one trip.
At full capacity, the Kaye Edmonton Clinic consolidates 80 outpatient clinics under one roof and provide ambulatory services to more than one million patients every year, including thousands from across western and northern Canada. Unique to Alberta, this nine-storey, 670,000 square foot facility brings multi-disciplinary teams of specialists together under one roof including surgical, medical, family and seniors’ clinics, as well as orthopedic and neurosciences clinics.
The Kaye Edmonton Clinic will allow rural Albertans to stay in their communities while keeping them connected, via new technologies, to the latest advances in diagnosis and treatment. In addition, this tremendous new out-patient facility enhances the partnership between Alberta Health Services and the University of Alberta by strategically aligning state-of-the-art technology, education and research.
Kaye Fund Competition
The Kaye Competition is a partnership between the University of Alberta Hospital (UAH), Kaye Edmonton Clinic (KEC) and the University Hospital Foundation (UHF), made possible through a $30 million transformational donation from Mr. Donald Kaye to UHF in 2012. This gift is one of the largest donations in the history of Canadian healthcare philanthropy.
