About Saskatchewan's New Children's Hospital

Officially opened on September 29 2019, the new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital offers state-of-the-art equipment and facilities for children, mothers and families from across our province. Centrally located next to the University of Saskatchewan campus in Saskatoon, our new maternal and children’s hospital offers neonatal intensive care, pediatric intensive care, general pediatrics, pediatric emergency and ambulatory services. Maternal services include labour and delivery, antepartum and postpartum care. The 176-bed facility provides the highest quality of care and is putting Saskatchewan at the forefront of research and innovation.

Hospital

Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation and its many partners began a quest for a specialized facility tailored to caring for the unique needs of children and families over a decade ago. Thanks to the foresight and years of hard work, Saskatchewan is no longer one of two provinces in Canada without a dedicated maternal and children’s hospital.

Ground Floor:
Pediatric Emergency, Pediatric Surgery and Recovery

The ground floor is home to Saskatchewan’s first dedicated pediatric surgery suites, with integrated induction rooms. This allows parents to be with their child while anesthesia is administered. The ground floor is also home to the pediatric emergency department with trauma spaces.

The new Pediatric Emergency is a calming space where children can feel secure and cared for while receiving emergency medical attention. It has capacity to treat over 5,000 more visits than today.

Main Floor: Home of the Leslie & Irene Dubé Centre of Care for Children, Entrance, Lobby, Pediatric Outpatient Clinic, Day Medicine

Once arriving through the main entrance of Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital, families are in the lobby area, which includes many family-friendly
amenities. Canada’s first Teammates for Kids Child Life Zone is also located on the main floor.

Pediatric Outpatients in the Leslie and Irene Dubé Centre of Care for Children has three times more exam room space than before. Here, young patients visit their specialist or other health care provider for appointments relating to general pediatrics, cancer, cardiology, hearing and gastroenterology.

Playroom

This floor is dedicated to pediatric inpatient care, with areas designated for Acute Care Pediatrics, a unique Observation area and a special zone for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), which is only one of its kind in Saskatchewan.

Additional features include: special family spaces, an outdoor patient play area, a school room and access to cutting-edge testing, as well as our province’s first Pediatric Sleep Lab, which means children no longer need to travel out of province for sleep studies.

Third Floor: Maternal Services

For the first time, maternal care is on one floor, allowing moms-to-be to labour, give birth and stay with their new baby and supportive partner in the same private room. This floor feature three dedicated maternal operating rooms and the Maternal Outpatient Clinic with fetal assessment.

Fourth Floor: Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

The NICU provides 24-hour care to infants who are critically ill or require tightly-controlled environments in which to recover. Prematurely-born babies fall in this category quite often, and are regularly given treatment in the NICU until they are strong enough to survive on their own.

The NICU now offers each baby and family a private room, which is dramatically different from what previously existed, where babies were cared for in side-by-side open bays. The private rooms include a sleep space and offer added confidentiality, while allowing parents to be engaged in their newborn’s care.
