Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation proud to partner with Hope’s Home

Hope’s Home will be expanding medically inclusive child care to Saskatoon and kicked off a capital campaign with a special gift announcement from Saskatchewan’s Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.

To provide the best health care for kids with critically complex medical needs beyond the walls of the hospital, Saskatchewan’s Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation (JPCHF) is partnering with Hope’s Home to provide specialized medical, therapy, sensory, and accessible equipment as well as programs that are necessary and vital to meet the diverse needs of the kids that both organizations serve. This partnership also places a family-focused approach with a daytime respite option for families and caregivers outside Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital.

Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation is proud to partner with Hope’s Home by providing a $700,000 gift towards the specialized pediatric equipment and accessible medical fixtures required within this unique facility.  In addition, JPCHF received a donor-designated gift of $300,000 in support of caring for critically complex pediatric health care needs and programming for Hope’s Home.

“We are so thankful for our partnership with Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation and the work we have been able to accomplish together across the province and now in Saskatoon as we care for children with complex medical needs,” said Jacqueline Tisher, Founder & CEO, Hope’s Home. “This partnership aligns with Hope’s Home’s current relationship with the Government of Saskatchewan through the Ministries of Education, Social Services, Health and Saskatchewan Health Authority. Together, we are all meeting the unique needs of our children.”

Brynn Boback-Lane, President & CEO of Saskatchewan’s Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation stated, “As a provincial Foundation, working with Hope’s Home showcases collaboration that has a direct impact on the health of Saskatchewan kids. Hope’s Home is an arm of provincial children’s health care, aligning with our Foundation’s mission, strategic directions and demonstrates that through the fostering of collaborative support, we can promote and positively improve health for our province’s children. A heartfelt thank you to Bev and Duane Smith for your generous commitment in recognizing the work of both organizations and enabling a continuum of care opportunity through our collective efforts.”

“For many years, Bev and I have been supporters of the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation. It is our desire to support leading-edge provincial organizations focused on the needs of children and this partnership between JPCHF and Hope’s Home meets our personal philanthropic goals,” said Duane Smith.

“The JPCHF’s purpose is to focus on the whole needs of the child and the arm of support from Hope’s Home, absolutely fits with the common purpose these two organizations share. We are thrilled to see a one-of-a-kind facility in Canada provide an environment where children with very complex medical needs are given a chance to learn, thrive and make friends while at the same time assisting their families with the physical and emotional stress they experience. This partnership is also an exceptional example where people across the province can come together to find innovative solutions and take action to meet the critical care and respite needs of children and their families,” said Bev and Duane Smith.
