The construction of the new state of the art Ashern Lakeshore General Hospital 26 private room inpatient unit expansion is on track for targeted completion at the end of the year with the first patients seen in the new wing sometime in February 2025.

As part of this expansion project, a new room for patients and visitors to gather called “All Are Relations” is being added. This room has a wall for a mural that will provide a welcoming environment for patients and their families.

“One of the ways people can feel at ease in health care facilities is through surroundings that represent who they are,” says Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority Indigenous health lead Adam Sanderson. “It is hoped that the feature wall at Ashern’s Lakeshore General Hospital will reflect local communities, the place of spirituality in the healing journey and be inclusive in its presentation.”

The artwork would need to be approximately 7’ high by 18’ wide and should reflect one or more of the following themes:

  • Health, Healing and Wellness
  • Nature
  • Indigenous culture/history
  • Local culture/history of surrounding communities
  • Truth and Reconciliation

Interested indigenous artists who would like to be considered to commission the mural are invited to submit an application at

Deadline for applications is August 30, 2024.
