      History

      Sturgeon General Hospital opened in 1969 on McKenney Avenue, but efforts to bring an active treatment hospital to St. Albert began in 1962. As St. Albert and other surrounding communities were denied by the provincial government, a coalition was formed to request a regional hospital, which in 1965 was granted, creating the Sturgeon General Hospital District No. 100. The Sturgeon General Hospital officially opened in August 1970. The Sturgeon General Hospital building on McKenney Avenue was closed in 1992 following the construction of a new facility on the north edge of the city and then demolished in 1997 (beginning work on 6 Mar 1997). The old structure was full of asbestos and thus considered unsafe.
