These modules are 95 hours and the approximate completion time is 10 -12 weeks.
EKRH provides hospital services to residents of the East Kootenay Health Service Area and care for over 80,000 patients a year. Our Emergency Department has a 16 bed ER including a Trauma room.

Our ED works in conjunction with the High Acuity Response Team and outlying facilities in both receive and transfer patients. We have a helicopter pad on site with frequent transfers with STARS (Alberta Flight).
