Effective August 6 – 21, Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital will temporarily consolidate obstetrical services at the Sturgeon Community Hospital in St. Albert. The decision to temporarily close the unit is due to the absence of obstetrical coverage. Pregnant patients who planned on delivering at Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital will need to adjust their birth plan to deliver at the Sturgeon Community Hospital. The Hospital emergency department remains open for urgent and emergent care. As always, all patients requiring immediate medical care should phone 911.
The Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital is an acute care facility, located northeast of Edmonton, offering a range of acute and outpatient care including 24-hour emergency services, women’s health, and ophthalmology.
