    Sherwood Park and Strathcona County have 90,000 residents, and they would definitely use an acute facility (including obstetrics, emergency, general surgery, outpatient clinics, etc.). Even if critical patients could be stabilized there, that would save lives. Leduc, St. Albert, Stony Plain and Fort Saskatchewan have facilities, and Sherwood Park's facility would take off some of the workload from the Grey Nuns, University and Royal Alexandra (and perhaps Fort Saskatchewan) hospitals.

      Poor Iris Evans. She kisses Stelmach's butt and her constituents still don't get a real hospital.

      Attention Sherwood Park residents:
      What has Iris Evans done for your community? It's time to get someone to stand up for Strathcona County....not someone who is a puppet of the premier.

        Sherwood Park/Strathcona County have been downwind from Refinery Row for decades....why do they need a Hospital now? Your taxes have been low for decades because of Refinery Row taxes paid to your COUNTY. Buiild your own bloody Hospital at your own expense.

        But YES, vote Iris out anyway....she is a former Nurse who has stabbed her own in the back as well.
        Time will tell on this new Alberta Government.

          well, the geography of Sherwood Park makes their access to quality hospitals (Grey Nuns, University and RAH) much better than the communities you have mentioned. I am all for having more hospital beds. I just don't see the comparison to St. Albert, for example, as a valid one. Sturgeon county is quite far from all the hospitals in Edmonton.

          I would just stick to a community of 90,000 people should have a hospital.

            I agree that Sherwood Park needs a hospital but this is typical PC politics of bait and switch. Maybe it is about time that Sherwood Park steps up to the plate and become a city proper, not a hamlet. Hamlets do not have hospitals, cities do.

                I agree jagators63, priorities have to be reviewed with a $4.7 billion deficit. At least Grande Prairie is getting a facility, and Sherwood Park is getting the first phase, which will put them on par with the NE Community Health Centre.

                  So after 10 years of foot dragging with multiple government surpluses during an oil boom, refinery expansions in Strathcona County, huge population growth and Sherwood Park gets diddly squat????? It amazes me how we keep voting for this same kakistocracy.

                    Sherwood Park didn't get diddly squat. They got squat and a half. They should have stepped up to the plate and become a city years ago. It's hard to wean yourself off those refineries.

                      If they would have gone into a shared facility with the Fort maybe they would have gotten something decent and actually built but they had to be greedy and keep it in their own back yard. Now they will both end up with a glorified medi-centres.

                        ^ good point.

                        Sherwood Park's pathway to getting a hostpital:
                        1. become a city
                        2. Learn to share
                        3. Be a little bit more generous

                        done.

                            Becoming a city will not make a difference, what will would be to shake up the provincial government's complacency. For example the province parachuted in a MLA for the last election Tim Uppel, he of course was elected, if the riding voted for someone else the government might realize they couldn't take that seat for granted (which they currently do).

                              Last time I checked, Tim Uppal was a member of federal Parliament.
