Finding the best, most appropriate and convenient health care facility may be easier with a new Alberta Health Services website.
The health care locator, which was recently launched on the AHS website, at www.albertahealthservices.ca, as well as on the free AHS mobile application, which AHS said has been downloaded more than 27,000 times since its launch.
Through the locator, people can enter in their postal code and search for the nearest facility or service that would best serve their needs.
“This new tool is another way AHS is simplifying the health system for Albertans,” said Debbie Goulard, Rockyview General Hospital executive director.
“There are more than 400 AHS facilities across the province and information for over 16,000 programs, services and facilities available on the AHS website.”
Directions to whatever facility would be most appropriate are provided using Google Maps functionality.
“Through our AHS website, or through our popular mobile app, Albertans can see quickly and easily where they can get appropriate care close to where they are, and our tool will even guide them to where they need to go,” said Goulard. “In this way, we’re literally helping Albertans to navigate the health system.”
