The Foundation

The Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation is 100% dedicated to Saskatchewan children, mothers, their families and their hospital, and proud partners of the Ministry of Health, Saskatoon and Regina Qu’Appelle Health Regions on the provincial Children’s Hospital project.

It started with a belief in a better future for Saskatchewan kids

Two passionate doctors believed that our kids deserved more. Dr. Alan Rosenberg and Dr. Jerome Yager knew that children had unique needs and required specialized equipment and research. And so, in 1992, the beginnings of Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation were created.

The dream grew a little bigger

With Saskatchewan as one of only two provinces in Canada without a dedicated children’s hospital, it didn’t take long to realize that children and families needed more. They deserved a special space of their own. In 2009, the Government of Saskatchewan committed $200 million for the new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital.

Before long, the idea picked up steam

The Be A Part of It Campaign, underwritten by Mosaic, launched with Western Canada’s largest individual gift in the history of pediatric healthcare at the time. Noted philanthropists Les and Irene Dubé kicked off fundraising efforts with a $6.5 million donation. That incredible donation was followed by several other major provincial contributions. Saskatchewan was on board!

A groundbreaking year

With a booming population, the Government of Saskatchewan announced an expansion of the children’s and maternal hospital to 176 beds and increased its investment to $235.5 million. Construction began on September 25, 2014 with an historic groundbreaking ceremony live-streamed across the province.

We promised to be there for Saskatchewan families

Our Foundation is committed to raising $75 million to ensure that all of the enhancements and family-friendly pieces will be ready to make our children’s hospital a special place for kids, moms-to-be, and families. And we will be here long after the “ribbon cutting” to continue raising funds for what our Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital will need to be a world-class facility.

Recognizing the need for a facility that would be tailored to care for the unique needs of the pediatric population, Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation began a quest toward their ultimate goal in 2003 – a new dedicated maternal and pediatric facility for Saskatchewan.
