Welcome to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation

Donors and volunteers are the heart and soul of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation.  This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation helping healthcare professionals at Moose Jaw Union Hospital and the new Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital.  The volunteer Board of the Foundation would like to thank all past and present donors that have helped the Foundation raise over $34,000,000 to help medical professionals save lives.

Recently, the Foundation's Capital Equipment Campaign and the Stretch Goal concluded and raised over $10.34 million dollars for:

  • Rural Saskatchewan's first MRI
  • Surgical Equipment
  • Labour & Delivery Equipment
  • Diagnostic equipment for the Lab
  • 128 Slice CT Scanner
  • Hyperbaric Chamber

 “We’re extremely pleased with the results of the campaign because we will be able to provide our medical professionals with the equipment they need to save and enhance lives at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital,” said James Murdock, Chair of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation. “To achieve the stretch goal of $2.34 million dollars after the $8 million dollar capital equipment campaign is a tremendous accomplishment for not only Moose Jaw, but for every community in the Five Hills Health Region.  We always felt we could achieve our goals because donors have given so generously over the last 30 years to help others.  Now we have the newest and best hospital in our community to help people close to home.”

Without the heartfelt donations of individuals, businesses, and community organizations none of this would have been possible. The medical professionals at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital deeply appreciate all of the hard work and countless hours that volunteers committed to making this achievement possible. The medical equipment purchased saves lives every day and brings comfort to patients and their families in their time of need.

Although the Capital Equipment Campaign Stretch Goal has concluded, our work as a Foundation never stops,” said James Murdock, Chair of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation. “We will be working closely with the Five Hills Health Region to identify additional cutting edge medical equipment and services to enhance direct patient care. The Foundation has for the past 30 years and will continue in the future to be dedicated to help medical professionals save and enhance the lives of people throughout the Five Hills Health Region at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital.  Thank you so much for your support.
