Room to Care. Time to Give.
We're tremendously grateful to our generous donors and community partners who enabled us to meet our $2.3 million* commitment to enhance care within the modern, state-of-the-art Misericordia Community Hospital emergency department (ED) our community needs and deserves. The new ED opened on November 21, 2023.
Each year, the old Misericordia ED served more than 50,000 patient visits – twice the capacity it was designed to support.
Patients come from across the Edmonton area and northern Alberta at a time of urgent need and great vulnerability.
Thank you for your support!

We’re excited to share new drone footage that shows the progress on the Misericordia ED construction.
All emergency department areas will be on the main floor with general treatment in the centre, mental health on the left, and radiology and staff spaces on the right. The levels above are for the mechanical systems like heating, ventilation and air conditioning. The project is on schedule to open in 2023.
“People are extremely excited,” says Heath Ramsden, clinical liaison at the Misericordia Community Hospital. “The Misericordia ED project is that shining star, the thing people can feel passionate about.”
*Note: The campaign total was previously reported as $2.6 million. The Misericordia emergency department team finalized the cost of its funding requests in November 2023, with the final total being $2.3 million.
