Located just north of Edmonton, the Sturgeon Community Hospital provides a wide variety of health services to the community of St. Albert and surrounding area.  As a community hospital, the Sturgeon’s focus is on providing the best care in a comfortable, modern and friendly setting. Care provided includes emergency, women’s health, cardiac care, surgery, medicine, pediatrics, and rehabilitation.
