Nurse Practitioners

​The nurse practitioner is an independent health care professional with advanced nursing practice who provides comprehensive health assessments, diagnosis/treatment and management of mothers and their newborns while they are at the PLC hospital post-partum unit.  

NPs work in collaboration with other health care professionals to ensure families are discharged home from the hospital in a timely but safe manner.  The NP helps organize any necessary follow-ups (ultra sounds, blood work, breast feeding clinic, specialist appointments, prescriptions, etc.) for mothers and babies in the community.  

The NP supports both the Maternity Care Clinic & Lougheed Maternity Group clients at the Peter Lougheed Centre​ on the PostPartum Unit. ​​​
