Important information from Calgary Health Trust regarding COVID-19

Kristin McVeigh | March 17, 2020

At Calgary Health Trust, we exist to better the health of families and individuals in our community. For almost 25 years we have been working with our partners at Alberta Health Services (AHS) to improve the quality of medical care through AHS infrastructure, medical equipment and its people.

During this challenging time navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to take the lead from our partners at AHS, the provincial health authority, who are at the front-line working to keep our community safe and healthy.

At Calgary Health Trust we believe in exceptional healthcare for every Calgarian and Albertan. It is our mission to bring the community and healthcare together to create better outcomes and better health for all. Today, it is apparent that that role is more important than ever.

Times like these are when the community can be stronger together by each doing our part.

As it stands, hand washing and social distancing measures have proven to be the most effective in containing the spread of the virus. Therefore, as of today, Calgary Health Trust will be postponing our donor events and tours for the foreseeable future.

As of Thursday, March 19, Calgary Health Trust staff will be working remotely, and our main office and hospital site offices will be closed. Options will be provided when you call our main line at 403-943-0615 or contact us via email. For more information or to make an online donation you can also visit our website. Mailed donations will continue to be accepted, but you may experience some delays in processing tax receipts. 

We will continue to stay in contact with you - our partners, donors and community members through virtual and telephone meetings. We plan for a smooth transition, but please be patient with us as we iron out our processes!

We strongly believe that this is the right course of action to take for our community and the health of yourself, your families and loved ones.

As this situation continues to evolve, we encourage you to stay informed at

Thank you for your understanding and passionate support for our community,

Mike Meldrum
President & CEO, Calgary Health Trust
