Animals help to heal the heart

March 9, 2015 | By |

We couldn’t help but share this wonderful story published by Alberta Health Services about Jan Eaton and a visit from her horse “Prince” while she was in the ICU at the Peter Lougheed Centre earlier this year.

 From the article:

“I was absolutely thrilled when I saw Prince’s ears perk up as he saw me peeking out from under my blankets,” Eaton says.

Be careful; the story might just melt your heart.  You can read the entire story here on Alberta Health Service’s website.

Check out these cute (doggie) patients!

January 20, 2015 | By |

BBC reports on a new study suggesting that a dog’s brain responds to human voices much the same way our brains do:

The researchers found that a similar region – the temporal pole, which is the most anterior part of the temporal lobe – was activated when both the animals and people heard human voices.

Most amazing is how compliant the pooches were to lay still for the duration of the scan.  Gosh do we love our canine friends!

Have a read of the full article and the study.

Don’t forget to turn your clocks back!

November 1, 2014 | By |

Now that Halloween has passed it is time yet again to turn our clocks back one hour.  A friendly reminder to set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed (and a heads up that your “smart” electronic devices will do so while you’re sleeping!)

Officially, at 2AM on Sunday November 2 all clocks jump back one hour and reset at 1AM.  The best part of daylight savings time in the fall? ONE EXTRA HOUR of SLEEP!

See you on Monday (and enjoy your extra hour of sleep!)

Real-Time X-Ray Wait Times

October 17, 2014 | By |

We are really excited to announce our brand new X-Ray Wait Time Tool – designed to provide an estimate of the wait times for walk-in x-ray at each of our clinics.

We knew there had to be a better way to provide our patients with an estimate of walk-in X-Ray wait times, and when we couldn’t find any solution that fit our needs we built it ourselves!

During our regular business hours wait times are updated roughly every 10 minutes. (Actual times to be seen in clinic may vary based on specific procedures or other circumstances).

A friendly reminder In order to ensure that you can get your X-Ray done before the end of the day please arrive at least 30 minutes before closing!

Please arrive at least 30 minutes before closing to ensure your exam can be completed. X-Ray wait times are updated every 10 minutes and reflect our best estimate of in-clinic wait times. Actual times may vary based on specific procedures or other circumstances.

September 3, 2014 | By |

The summer of 2014 shall be remembered for the viral nature of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  It was just a matter of time before a nomination was thrown our way.  Special thanks to Francine on our Patient Care team for the nomination!

 

Our good friend Brett W. Wilson’s Ice Bucket Challenge has more than 10,000 views at the time of writing; he was generous enough to donate $10 for every share or re-tweet (up to $10,000) for the cause!
