What We Do

At Hearts For Healthcare, our goal is to enrich the healthcare services available in the Cold Lake area. A large part of what we do involves raising funds to purchase life-saving equipment, enhancing existing facilities and delivering important staff training. We support this in the following ways:

  • Physician Attraction & Retention
  • Facility Enhancements
  • Community Advocacy

Jessalyn Weir
Family Physician in Cold Lake
Hometown: Regina, SK

My name is Jessalyn, and I’m a family physician in my first year of practice in Cold Lake, AB. I was born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan, in a family of five. Growing up, some of my best memories revolved around camping in the prairies over the summer months, and skiing in the Rockies over the winter months. I had a strong passion for learning from a young age, and knew I wanted a career where the learning never ends. I decided to pursue a career in medicine, starting with undergraduate training at the University of Regina in Kinesiology. I eventually went on to graduate from University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine in 2016.

Our Initiatives

Our initiatives work to recognize the healthcare professionals in Cold Lake, to support patients and to help us fundraise for the important work we do.

Major Equipment Profile ECG

MAC 5500 HD ECG System | $16,279 Investment (2017 Quote)

This ECG system will give the Cold Lake Healthcare Centre Emergency Department the ability to share cardiac event data in real time with Cardiologists in the city because it will be wirelessly connected to the province-wide MUSE electronic recording and filing information system.

It is much faster, more detailed, more accurate and lighter than the one we currently use that is not able to connect to the province-wide system.

This is just one way we’re enhancing healthcare services in Cold Lake

Hearts for Healthcare is an independent non-profit organization. We work with numerous health care organizations in Cold Lake to enhance healthcare services in the Cold Lake area. Learn more about the work we do and our people by visiting our About page.

Funding for health in Canada and Alberta is provided on a per capita basis. As a result, Canada’s northern communities, which are not as densely populated, have smaller budgets with which to equip healthcare facilities. Northern communities also struggle to attract and retain healthcare workers.

Fantastic! We’d love to have you on board. Simply fill out our volunteer form.
