“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).
Your support of the Fellowship Funding Program will fill service gaps and meet patient needs, support and retain young talent, and enhance treatment options. The program’s premise is to ensure funding supports areas of medical training that fit with the needs of the hospital. It offers financial support in exchange for a return-of-service to Saskatoon.
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.
Bladder Scanner for Convalescent Unit
