About Us

Our Vision

We provide and accelerate optimal health care and services for our community.

 

The Strathcona Community Hospital in Sherwood Park is an innovative facility, delivering primary health care, combined with community-based services and a 24-hour emergency department supported by on-site diagnostic services.

 

The new hospital is designed to complement established primary care, public health, home care and mental health services in the community.

 

An active Hospital Foundation made up of dedicated members from local business and area community supports the site. The goal of our Foundation is to make a significant impact on health delivery in a variety of ways - funding vital needs, programs, research and education. The work of our Foundation and our donors enhances patient care and translates into positive health experiences for our community. 

 

Approximately 80 per cent of patients utilizing the facility are from Sherwood Park and Strathcona County, with the remainder from Edmonton and other nearby communities.

 

Learn more about the patient care, community partnerships and hospital use since the facility opened. There are also a variety of programs and services offered through the new hospital.
