Additional information about health facilities is available at Alberta Health.

Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre (Calgary)

Construction of the Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre (formerly the Calgary Cancer Centre) was completed in December 2022 and is anticipated to open to the public in 2024.

This project was an economic driver in Calgary:

  • creating approximately 8,770 well-paying construction and construction-related jobs
  • generating approximately 8 million work hours to complete the construction of the facility

The new centre covers approximately 186,000 square metres (over 2 million square feet) and has:

  • 13 above-grade levels
  • 5 levels of underground parking (1,650 parking stalls)

Services to be delivered at the Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre are based on clinical priorities that AHS identifies and include:

  • outpatient cancer clinics
  • 160 inpatient unit beds
  • wet and dry research labs
  • clinical and operational support services
  • clinical trials unit and research laboratories
