Supporting Saskatoon's Hospitals

ROYAL UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL FOUNDATION

If you or someone you love needs surgery, you don’t want to wait. Or worry. At Royal University Hospital you will receive exceptional care, provided by our highly qualified surgical teams, but we need new operating rooms. Proceeds from the 2021 Spring Hospital Home Lottery will support the $20 million transformation of the 43-year-old operating rooms at RUH. This much needed update will help decrease surgical wait times, increase safety and assist in recruiting, retaining and supporting our specialized surgical teams. There are over 10,000 surgeries performed at RUH each year ranging from Neurology, Cardiac, Trauma, Orthopedics, General Surgery, Cancer, Dental, Spine, Urology, Gynecology and Gynecologic Oncology. Our Surgery OR Campaign will ensure Saskatchewan residents receive the highest quality surgical care in new and modern O.R.’s right here at home. Royal University Hospital will be ready when you need us most.

ST. PAUL’S HOSPITAL FOUNDATION

Your Hospital Home Lottery ticket purchase is saving lives by bringing 16 state-of-the-art Critical Care Monitors and a Perioperative Echocardiography Ultrasound to St. Paul’s Hospital.

The rhythmic beep of a Critical Care Monitor can be just the reassurance your worried soul needs…telling you that your loved one is stable. You can be secure in the knowledge that your critically ill family member is unwaveringly monitored with crucial information consistently provided to a watchful team of health care workers in the Intensive Care Unit.

The Perioperative Echocardiography Ultrasound will be used by our anesthesiologists to monitor and diagnose blood pressure and heart issues in the operating room, helping our health care teams manage unforeseen and unexpected challenges that can occur during surgery.

SASKATOON CITY HOSPITAL FOUNDATION

Every year Saskatoon City Hospital’s Sleep Disorders Centre treats thousands of patients for sleep disorders such as snoring, restless leg syndrome, and sleep apnea. While many patients are treated on an outpatient basis and through home studies, patients considered urgent – those with respiratory issues or occupational needs – visit the hospital for overnight sleep studies.

These patients often require oxygen and while some may need a bariatric bed, larger beds are more comfortable for everyone. Your support of the Hospital Home Lottery will help purchase six transcutaneous oxygen monitors and six bariatric beds for the centre. Having this equipment in every room of the centre optimizes and expedites treatment for patients, especially those with urgent needs.
