Covenant Care welcomes Saint-Thomas Health Centre to its family

September 17, 2014 News


Covenant Care will be assuming ownership of Centre de santé Saint-Thomas Health Centre (Saint-Thomas) in the coming months.

“We are excited to build on the important work started by the founders of Saint-Thomas Health Centre. Our two organizations align very well from a mission and values perspective and we bring a wealth of experience and expertise in continuing care to the operation.” – Truman Severson, VP, Innovation and Business Development

“The Centre de Santé St-Thomas Board and Management team have worked diligently over the past 18 months to ensure the long term viability of our facility. To that end, we were able to garner the support of Covenant Care who has accepted to take over ownership of the site and, in so doing, preserve the original vision and mission of Centre de Santé St-Thomas for many years to come. We are confident the Francophone community will continue to be well served and that Centre de Santé St-Thomas will deliver quality services to everyone entering our facility in need of assisted living care.” – Paul Denis, Board Chair, Centre de Santé St-Thomas

Saint-Thomas will be the fourth Covenant Care centre in the province, joining Villa Marie in Red Deer, Holy Cross Manor in Calgary and Place Beauséjour in Beaumont. While the service delivery model may differ from site to site, the commitment to high quality care and service remains the same. At Saint-Thomas, support services and resident care are being delivered through an outsourcing model. This decision was made by Saint-Thomas’ Board following an operational review which was conducted with the goal of ensuring long term viability and sustainability.

“We are pleased to be working with Saint Elizabeth Health Care and Aramark and have full confidence that their staff have the skills and experience to provide the care and services to residents.” – Truman Severson

Saint-Thomas (est. 2007) has 200-units and is located in Edmonton’s Francophone community. Covenant Care is committed to maintaining a strong community connection. “Covenant Care’s vision of fostering enriching environments where people find meaningful opportunities to live, work and grow is closely aligned with Saint-Thomas’s beliefs. Through Covenant Care, we are thrilled to be joining the Catholic Health of Alberta family providing, in this way, sustainable assisted living services to our clients and tenants far into the future.” Paul Denis
