AHS is working to ensure that Albertans have innovative ways to access information about healthcare services by providing an application for mobile devices. Having a single AHS app on the two most used mobile platforms, iOS and Android, means Albertans will be able to find official AHS content and functionality without sorting through the hundreds of thousands of available apps.
Emergency wait times are available for the Calgary area – more wait times will become available as that service rolls out across the province. The app features a map that shows the user’s current location and the nearest emergency departments and urgent care centers along with their respective wait times. There is also a list view so that all of the locations can be seen at once – just like the website.
We are working on being able to provide more apps including: Mobile version of AHS website – all of our current content optimized for mobile devices:
ATM: There is only one ATM at the Peter Lougheed Centre and it is located beside the Take Ten.
If it’s an emergency, who do I call if I have left the Alberta Children’s Hospital (ACH) but haven’t had my first appointment at the SAACHC yet?
If you haven’t turned 18, you should call your doctor from the Alberta Children's Hospital (ACH). If this is an emergency you should proceed to the nearest Urgent Care Center or the ACH Emergency Department even if you haven’t had your first appointment.
If you’re 18 or older, you should proceed to the nearest Urgent Care Centre or Emergency Department even if you haven’t had your first appointment.
Call the Adult Congenital Heart Clinic at the Peter Lougheed Centre (403) 943-4504 once you have been discharged from the hospital so we can follow up with you.
You’ll receive a letter a few weeks before your clinic appointment. Please call ahead if you can’t make it. That way, we can fill that spot with another patient who is waiting to be seen.
The phone number for the bookings office is: (403) 943-4504
If you miss your appointment, please call us as soon as possible to schedule another appointment. We’ll probably call you, but it’s better if you call us first. Here at PLC, we think of patients as partners in their health care.
If you think you are overdue for your clinic appointment but haven’t received your letter in the mail, you should also call the clinic to find out when your next appointment will be.
Remember, we’re partners in this!
This website is designed specifically for young people with congenital heart disease. The goal is to provide information to help people who are getting ready to move (or have recently moved) to adult heart care. We use the term ‘transition’ to describe this process. Family, friends and health care providers may also find this website helpful.

It is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. If you have or suspect you have a health problem, please consult your family physician.

We have a simple ‘Getting to Know You’ survey that we ask all visitors to complete (we don’t ask for any personal health information). Website browsing activity will be monitored so that we can learn about the people who visit the website, how often people visit the website, and the web pages that are visited most often. This will help us decide which changes and improvements to make to the website in the future. Results from this project will be described for groups of website visitors (i.e., not for individual users).
Anyone can visit this website and most users will create their own User IDs and passwords. However, there are also Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) and pediatric cardiology programs that have officially joined the iHeartChange team and work together to keep this website going. (You can find a list of the ACHD programs in the ‘Welcome to Adult Care’ section of the website). Some of these programs might choose to assign User IDs so that they can track of and how patients from their own programs visit the website. They might even want to track this for research. If you have been assigned a User ID from a program, that program might ask us to give them information about your answers to the ‘Getting to Know You’ survey, how many times you log into the website and which web pages you visit.
