The tradition of community service established at the Misericordia Hospital began with the foundress of the Misericordia Sisters, Mere de la Nativite. She was born Marie-Rosalie Cadron on January 27, 1794. As a young child she was noted as being particularly concerned with the wellbeing of those less fortunate then herself. After the passing of her husband in 1832, Marie-Rosalie’s charitable work became her main focus especially serving unwed pregnant young women in the Montreal core. Despite criticism for her work, Marie-Rosalie continued attending to these women eventually creating a hospice where her and other volunteers could house greater numbers of women. Eventually the society was constituted in a ceremony in 1848.
The history of the Edmonton Misericordia hospital began in 1900 with the arrival in Edmonton of four members of the Montreal-based Misericordia Sisters and a nurse from the Community’s House in Ottawa. On Aug 29 they opened a small maternity hospital in a converted warehouse in the Oliver district. 6 years later the first iteration of the Misericordia hospital was built on the west side of 111th street between 98th and 99th avenue. This hospital would provide care for the population of Edmonton and house the Misericordia nursing school until the new hospital was built in 1969 where it now stands today.For as long as Edmonton has been a city there has been a Misericordia hospital to serve its needs.
