SUPPORTING SASKATOON'S THREE HOSPITALS
ST. PAUL'S HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
Proceeds will support state of the art equipment for St. Paul’s Hospital, including a Labscan Luminex to identify gene sequences for organ and bone marrow transplant patients, a Draeger PulmoVista that produces a real-time view of the ventilation of patient lungs, and a Supine Cycle to provide leg and arm therapy for Intensive Care Unit patients.
SASKATOON CITY HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
Your support of the Hospital Home Lottery will help health professionals get a better look. Proceeds will benefit the upgrade of a Fluoroscopy Suite in the hospital’s medical imaging department. They’ll also replace the department’s aging portable x-ray unit. For many patients, their health journey begins with a visit to medical imaging – more than 50,000 medical image procedures were performed at Saskatoon City Hospital last year. Having the newest and best technology means clearer imaging, faster diagnoses, more efficient treatments, and improved safety.
ROYAL UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
Chronic diseases such as arthritis, cardiovascular diseases including heart attacks and stroke, breast and colon cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, seizures, and obesity tend to become more common with age. More than 50 per cent of Canadians live with a chronic disease and in Canada, chronic disease is projected to account for 89% of all deaths. About 257,000 (23%) of Saskatchewan residents live with a chronic disease. RUH Foundation is committed to raise $2 million dollars in support of chronic disease research, new comprehensive assessment and lifestyle programs, education and equipment to innovate and transform care for Saskatchewan people who have chronic disease and help save and enhance the lives of so many.
