Cedar Valley Lodge Health Services at the LNG Canada Project Site

The LNG Canada Project site has on-site medical facilities staffed by more than a dozen healthcare professionals and emergency response team (ERT) members that are available to project workers 24-7.

International SOS (ISOS), a global health and security services firm, operates the project’s on-site medical clinics. ISOS is trained in COVID-19 safety and screening measures as well as care for patients with the virus.

Providing professional medical care at our worksite greatly reduces the need for off-site services.

On-site resources include:

  • Two nurse practitioners
  • Three registered nurses
  • Seven emergency response team members, of which 3 are primary care paramedics
  • Three medical clinics
  • Four advanced care paramedics, who provide around-the-clock medical services
  • Virtual access to the physician medical director 24/7 for consultations from the nurse practitioner, when needed.

Additional resources and equipment have been introduced to manage COVID-19 prevention and care. These include:

  • Isolation wings in our workforce accommodation centres where any resident with symptoms or confirmed COVID-19 infection is housed and receives services and care in seclusion from the rest of the population.
  • Increased staffing of medical professionals
  • On-site COVID-19 swabs for workers as directed by health authorities
  • Increased supplies of medical grade oxygen
  • Non-medical Personal Care Attendants to assist worker accommodation centre residents in isolation wings

Services are provided at a number of locations on site and in worker accommodation centres, providing a range of medical support services that include occupational, non-occupational and mental health support.
