Stollery NICU coming to Sturgeon in 2019
We’re proud to partner with the Canadian Progress Club – St. Albert Chapter and artist Lewis Lavoie to create a mosaic mural as a fundraiser that’s part of our $2.5-million campaign goal in support of state-of-the-art equipment and training for the new six-bed Stollery neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) opening at the Sturgeon Community Hospital in fall 2019.
You can be part of this amazing fundraising opportunity – and help Stollery kids and their families from backyards across Sturgeon County – by donating today to get your own custom tile on the mural (check out our mural concept here).
*Please be advised that logos and photos may be altered by colour or design in order to align with the mosaic mural. To learn more about mosaic murals and to see samples of Lavoie’s work please visit muralmosaic.com.

About the Stollery NICU at the Sturgeon
The number of deliveries at the Sturgeon Community Hospital has increased dramatically in recent years. In fact, the Sturgeon Hospital is the largest neonatal site in Alberta without neonatal support.
More than 3,000 babies were born at the Hospital in 2016, with three to four per cent of those newborns requiring intensive care. However, without a NICU at the Hospital, as many as 90 babies had to be transferred to one of four NICUs in Edmonton including two Stollery NICUs – one at the University Hospital and the other at the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
That all changes in fall 2019 when the Sturgeon Community Hospital opens its doors to a new $2.3-million Stollery NICU. We’ve committed to raising an additional $2.5 million to fund state-of-the-art equipment and training within the NICU, with the help of generous donors like you.
