Help make sure exceptional care is available for every patient who comes through the doors of a Covenant Health hospital, during the pandemic and beyond.
When you ask 17-year-old Julian how he would describe his mom, Corrine, who works on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, his answer is simple. “She is a hero.”
A nurse for more than 30 years, Corrine knows that when you work in acute care you have to be ready for anything. You have to be prepared for when accidents happen, when fevers spike, when test results are positive… and in unprecedented times like this.
“We never know what the next shift will be like,” she says. “Are we going to turn a corner or is it going to get worse?”
Corrine and health care workers all across Alberta are tackling the COVID-19 pandemic with courage and compassion, but it hasn’t been easy.
“No matter what the next day or next shift brings, we’ll keep doing whatever is needed to make sure our patients are cared for and safe,” says Corrine.

Your gift will help fund the areas of greatest need in acute care or continuing care, including: compassionate care and programs, state-of-the-art technology, increased mental health services and innovative new tools to help health-care providers deliver the best care possible to patients, residents and families during these difficult times.
I hope we can count on you. The need for health-care funding has always been significant. The pandemic has just widened the gap.
“It does the heart good to have people step forward to support us,” says Corrine. “It’s just a boost because it means our efforts are not going unnoticed. We don’t do this for the accolades. We do it because we want take care of people. We like to take care of people.”
Corrine’s son Julian echoes that sentiment. “It’s honestly great how people continue to help out,” he says. “The people that donate are heroes too… like my mom.”
