Bonnyville Health Centre
The Bonnyville Health Centre is the focal point for health care in the Lakeland region It not only offers emergency acute and longterm care but is also the Community Cancer Centre and as such offers chemotherapy and other programs from the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton
