OUTSIDE IN

Edson Healthcare Centre, Edson, Alberta,
Canada, opened November 2016

T

HE EDSON HEALTHCARE CENTRE in Edson‚ Alberta,
Canada, is a full-service rural healthcare facility
located in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies.
Operated by Alberta Health Services and designed by
Dialog (Calgary, Alberta), the center houses a range
of services including emergency, diagnostic imaging
and laboratory, surgery, inpatient care, ambulatory
care, long-term care, and clinical care.
Simplifying navigation within the often-complex medical environment
was paramount to the design of the new facility, which opened in November 2016. The two-story building takes advantage of its sloping site by
using a two-level design with a main level and a walk-out lower level that
allows for intuitive wayfinding as well as daylight to flow throughout the
facility. Generous floor-to-ceiling glazing in the hallways creates a link to
the exterior to help guests orient themselves.
The interior finishes were inspired by the picturesque scenery and
forest surroundings and include soft colors, warm wood tones, and
nature photography of local landmarks.
Within the center, 48 long-term care beds are organized into three
16-bed residential units. Each room has a large, operable picture
window, which provides a visual connection to the outdoors. The
continuing care facility is centered on a courtyard and consists of four
houses of 19 patient rooms each.
Recognizing the size and scale of Edson Healthcare Centre and the
potential environmental impact of its carbon footprint, the
project team sought a sustainable design process for the
project, including designing the building to target LEED
Silver certification.
