Since the very first Radiothon, 20 years ago, over $14.5 million has been raised for Saskatchewan moms and kids in hospital.

On November 8th & 9th, we’ll share inspiring stories from kids, families, medical professionals, supporters and sponsors from 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Together everyone will play a part in making the Radiothon a success and help enhance maternal and children’s health care in our province.

Advancing Equipment for Innovative Surgeries

  • Did you know? Over *3600 Saskatchewan kids per year have surgery at JPCH. *53.7% of our patients travel from outside of Saskatoon to come to JPCH.
  • Enhancements and additions of equipment are needed to provide ongoing surgical care in Saskatchewan, allowing children and families to stay in their home province. 
  • The Sonopet machine is an ultrasonic aspirator ensuring surgeons have a high level of precision. This equipment puts minimal pressure on children undergoing surgery with brain tumours or birth defects. 
  • The Sonopet machine can eliminate the need for children to be on life long high flow oxygen or worse a tracheostomy.
  • An expansion of Ears, Nose, and Throat (ENT) services are needed in the Operating Room at JPCH. This critical equipment will allow JPCH patients to have reduced anaesthetic complications, quicker recoveries, and declined rates of post-op admissions.

Increasing Capacity of Care for Scoliosis Patients

  • Halo gravity traction is a technique used for the treatment of children with severe spine deformities, seen in scoliosis patients.
  • Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital is the only place in Saskatchewan that can treat patients with scoliosis who require halo rings to mend their spines. 
  • The halo ring is worn to get the spine into a place where surgery can be safely completed (typically within one to three months).
  • Additional halo equipment at JPCH means keeping children off the waitlist and getting them treatment sooner.

Lifesaving Therapy for Acute Kidney Patients

  • One of the greatest predictors of mortality in critically ill children is the presence of acute kidney injury.
  • Early use of Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) helps save the lives of our sickest and youngest patients.
  • The JPCH Pediatric Intensive Care Unit sees approximately *480 cases per year, with over *66% of kids who come from outside of Saskatoon for care.
  • In the JPCH Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, the utilization of CRRT continues to grow increasing along with the need to improve outcomes for patients with acute kidney injury.
  • With the purchase of the PrisMax CRRT Machine, it will ensure more efficient and streamlined technology is used allowing JPCH medical professionals to achieve the highest standard of care for Saskatchewan children.
