“Give me the best and I’ll provide the rest.” Equip for Excellence is a multi-million dollar campaign to enhance healthcare at Saskatoon City Hospital through the purchase of equipment, resources and technology. To date, almost $10 million has been raised. Major capital equipment purchases include a state-of-the-art, 3D mammography unit, an endoscopic ultrasound, a point-of-care ultrasound in the emergency department, and a vein viewer. The campaign also enabled a $2 million dollar upgrade and modernization of the hospital’s Surgical Pathology Lab.
As there will always be technological change and ways to better health care at Saskatoon City Hospital, the list of needed items remains.
If you would like to discuss the items on this list or wish to see a more extensive list of needs, please email SCHF@SaskHealthAuthority.ca or call 306-655-8489 (toll free 1-800-603-4464).
Transitional Care Unit upgrade
Transitional Care is a 30-bed unit with residents who no longer require acute hospital care and are waiting placement in a community facility. Your donation will support upgrades that will create a common dining space where residents may dine, learn and be entertained with other residents. New artwork will create a friendlier atmosphere while new equipment is needed to replace aging equipment and bring the unit to current standards.
At Saskatoon City Hospital, Recreation Therapists work with patients of all ages. Much of the work happens in the hospital’s gymnasium. Your gift will help replace aging equipment, some of which has been used since the hospital opened in 1993.
It’s well proven that warm blankets and IV fluids benefit patients. Your contribution will provide comfort to patients waiting diagnoses and treatment in the hospital’s Emergency Department.
