The health service subsector includes: consulting, distribution, health networks, hospital support services and management, diagnostic imaging, laboratories, and telehealth/telemedicine. Alberta has a particularly strong reputation in the area of patient care, and especially as it relates to the treatment of heart attacks and the hip and knee replacement pilot project being managed by the Alberta Bone and Joint Institute.
