Norwood is located in central Edmonton, across from the Royal Alexandra Hospital and beside the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital. Once a traditional long-term care centre with 205 beds, Norwood now offers a mix of programs which include post-acute care, a palliative hospice and complex long-term care in an environment that supports choice, autonomy and, where possible, independence.  Norwood's specialized programs are:

Alternative Level of Care:

  • For individuals with stable medical conditions who no longer require treatment in acute care, but require further assessment to determine the optimal living option (home care, supportive living or long-term care).


 Chronic Ventilator Unit (Red Eagle Ridge):

  • For individuals with significant chronic illness and complex health needs who require ventilation.
  • Health team includes 24-hour Respiratory Therapists to support ventilator care.


Restorative Care:

  • Support for individuals, often frail seniors, who wish to return to their home/community after an acute episode which required hospitalization.
  • Provides continued rehabilitation, clinical care and discharge planning to ensure a successful return to home.

Post-Acute Care:

  • For individuals with significant but stable medical conditions who require an extended period of recovery following the acute phase of a surgery, illness or accident.
  • Provides continued rehabilitation, clinical care and discharge planning to ensure a successful return to home.
