Grace Hospital is and has been a place where many of life’s most important moments take place. The Grace Hospital plays an integral role in the delivery of health care services in Winnipeg, and has done so since 1904. We are currently one of three acute care sites in the city, providing full services in our Emergency Department, in critical care, as well as providing a full complement of acute care services.
As our patient, we see you as a person first. You are unique and special, and your health care needs are equally unique and special. Our job is to address those needs as effectively as possible.
