Calgary

Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering
health supports and services for more than 3.7 million adults and children living in Alberta.
Its mission is to provide a patient-focused, quality health system that is accessible and
sustainable for all Albertans.

The new McCaig Tower at the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary is the result of a 10-year
vision to expand the Foothills Campus, based on the needs of the population of Calgary and
surrounding area. It will incorporate existing services at the Foothills Hospital, but the
modern design, proximity and efficiency, will allow for improved delivery of those services. By
relocating some of the existing services at the Foothills into the new building, space will also
be created to expand other areas of the hospital, including the emergency department.
 
Among other services, the McCaig Tower will include:
  • Seven operating rooms and a new interventional trauma operating room, which is the first
  • for its kind in Canada.
  • A new 36-bed ICU unit which will incorporate the existing 25-bed ICU.
  • Improvements in infection prevention and control
This new addition will include 93 inpatient beds, 36 bed intensive care unit, 21 short-stay beds,
a total of 150 additional beds, as well as eight operating rooms.

Hospital power plant


The Foothills hospital site receives about 50 percent of its power supply from two steam
turbine generators located on the site. The oil coolers on the generators use river water
for cooling via a heat exchanger where the oil and water do not normally come into contact.
A booster pump assists with water circulation. The water discharge is normally returned
back to the Bow River through the storm water system. Its power plant was first built
in 1968. The electricity production of this plant was 22,507 MWh in 2007.

building is one of the most technologically advanced research facilities in the world and
houses the characterization suite, which is one of the quietest laboratory spaces in Canada.

カナダの医療制度は日本と異なり予約のいらない「ウォーク・イン・クリニック」、患者がかかり
つけの医師を決め、予め登録の必要な「ファミリードクター」、その上に「専門医」とがある。
「ウォーク・イン・クリニック」では2時間程度の待ち時間は覚悟しておかねばならないが、
ネット上で待ち時間を公開しているようである。他はすべて予約制となっているので待ち時間は
ほとんどない。「専門医」を直接受診することは出来ず、先ず「ファミリードクター」の診察、
紹介が必要となる。

大都市の病院では高度の医療がほどこされ、辺地診療には大学病院からヘリコプターも使用され、
定期的に医師が派遣されている。地域の保健機構に登録さえしておれば医療費は歯科診療を
除いてすべて無料である。ただし薬代は有料となっている。この原則は筆者がカナダで診療していた
1970年代当時と同じである。

今回の病院視察で古い施設をそのまま利用しているところと、カルガリーのように、最新鋭の
医療設備で高度の診療を行っているところがあった。病院内は患者さんおよび面会者に広く
解放されており、病院スタッフはとても親切である。驚くべきことは、カルガリー大学病院には
二つのタービンエンジンを使用、ボウ川の水を利用した大規模な自家発電装置があり、病院に
必要な電力の50%を供給していることである。アルバータ州の一人当たりのGDPは75,000ドルと
カナダ平均の46,440ドルを大きく引き離しており(2007年)、こうした背景もカルガリーなどの
都市部で見られる高度医療施設の建設を後押ししているのかもしれない。
