Equipped with the latest medical technology and specialized infection prevention and control features, the McCaig Tower at the Foothills Medical Centre is a model in Alberta for the delivery of healthcare.
The McCaig Tower houses a 36-bed ICU, 24 ORs, 93 in-patient beds in three units, the largest Central Surgical Processing (CSP) unit in North America to serve all the Foothills Medical Centre surgical facilities, a large clinical laboratory, and ambulatory orthopedic services including Diagnostic Imaging.
Quiet rooms and family spaces allow for private meetings with physicians. Individual ICU rooms mean privacy for patients and their families as well as a lower risk of infection. More open space around each bed allows families to be comfortably bedside.
