Health campuses are meant to improve human health within their walls, but how can they do so beyond the walls, in the neighbourhoods of which they are a part? In November 2017, Sustainable Calgary commissioned a review of international precedents on innovative health care campuses. Bridgeland-Riverside was in discussion with Alberta Health Services about a new health facility in its community. In this context, we wanted to know if there were examples of health campuses designed to contribute to healthy places by incorporating active transportation, green space and urban agriculture into their design and construction.
