The Kaye Edmonton Clinic
Celebrating it's 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.
At full capacity, The Kaye Edmonton Clinic will consolidate 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 will bring multi-disciplinary teams of specialists together under one roof including surgical, medical, family and seniors’ clinics, as well as orthopedic and neurosciences clinics. This integration will provide seamless ambulatory care for up to one million patient visits per year.
"The influence of the clinic is far beyond Edmonton," said Dr. Dylan Taylor, Co-facility Medical Director for the Kaye Edmonton Clinic, the University of Alberta, Hospital and the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute. "People who come from a significant distance will have the potential to do many things on one trip."
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 will enhance the partnership between Alberta Health Services and the University of Alberta by strategically aligning state-of-the-art technology, education and research.
Donald Kaye's $30-million investment in innovative patient care and research brings great promise to the ongoing search for better ways to improve health and save lives.
