Covenant Health

TROCHU - Covenant Health has again been named one of Alberta’s Top 75 Employers for 2022. The

annual competition, into its 17th year, recognizes Alberta employers who are leaders in their industries, and are also exceptional places to work.

“We are honoured to be named one of Alberta’s employer of choice, providing a positive workplace for our teams, and excellent care for our patients and residents,” says Elaine Watson, Chief Human Resources Officer.

“Even as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to challenge healthcare systems nationwide two years on, our teams remain committed to delivering the highest quality care to patients and residents. This recognition validates the hard work of staff, volunteers and physicians who live our mission and values daily, providing excellent and compassionate care in all circumstances.”

More than half of Covenant Health’s 17 facilities are located in rural Alberta communities, providing acute and continuing care services, as well as valuable employment for community members.

“We also want to acknowledge all our teams at our rural acute and continuing care sites, who have been instrumental in helping us achieve this honour,” says Rosa Rudelich, Chief Operating Officer.

“Everyone is a winner. It is not one person, one team, but the collective effort of many courageous individuals working together with passion and compassion every single day. They are the reason we are able to achieve a meaningful recognition such as this, and more importantly our mission.”

The competition evaluates key performance indicators such as work environment, employee benefits and professional development opportunities. With this year’s award, Covenant Health has been recognized eight times as one of Alberta’s Top Employers.

Covenant Health is one of Canada’s largest Catholic healthcare organizations with over 15,000 physicians, employees and volunteers serving in 12 communities across Alberta. A major provider in Alberta’s integrated health system, Covenant Health works with Alberta Health Services and community partners to positively influence the health of Albertans through a broad range of programs and services.
