The Coronation Health Centre Foundation is guided by a community volunteer board from Coronation and surrounding area. Every dollar raised in Coronation stays in Coronation and directly benefits Coronation health services.

FOUNDATION HISTORY

In January 1987, the hospital Administrator, approached both the Coronation Hospital Board and the Coronation Nursing Home Board with the idea of a hospital foundation. The basic purpose of the foundation was to raise money for capital projects in the acute care hospital, auxiliary hospital and the nursing home. Both boards approved this idea in principle. At the Hospital Board meeting in October 1987, the bylaws were approved. On January 12th, 1988, the bylaws were approved by the Alberta Government and the Foundation was formed.

HOSPITAL HISTORY

The Town of Coronation and district has a long standing history of supporting their local hospital and medical clinic. January 1915, was the beginning of public hospital care in Coronation and district, with the opening of a newly constructed hospital. Local organizations throughout town and surrounding area pledged their fundraising proceeds towards this worthwhile project. October 19th, 1960 marked the official opening day of the second hospital, Coronation Municipal Hospital and replaced the original 1915 construction. The Women’s Auxiliary, the Legion, Order of the Royal-Purple and Sunshine Club were just a few of the local organizations involved in furnishing the wards. In April 1984, Coronation and District Health Care Complex opened. This existing structure has seen many changes over the years. Regionalization occurred in April 1995, downsizing the number of acute care beds and changing the name to Coronation Health Centre. In the early 2000’s, the David Thompson Health Region changed the facility name to Coronation Hospital and Care Centre. Presently the hospital is a multi-level facility providing Acute Care, Long Term Care and Supportive Living.
