We are so thankful to Leslie and Irene Dubé for their most generous gift of $6,500,000 to the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation, which was publically announced October 7, 2009, to hundreds of provincial children’s hospital supporters at a special Thanksgiving Celebration in their honour. This gift represents the largest individual gift to pediatric health care in Western Canada. The Dube’s gift will be used to facilitate the Leslie and Irene Dubé Centre of Care for Children in the new Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan.
The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan proudly and gratefully receives this donation which is designated to the creation of the Leslie and Irene Dubé Centre of Care for Children. This Centre will be recognized as the main core area and entrance into the new Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan, warmly welcoming all Saskatchewan patients, families and visitors into the new Children’s Hospital that will support the province’s sick and injured kids. It will be the focal point from which the families and children will begin their personal journey of care received at the Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan.
