Welcome to the Moose Jaw Health Foundation

The Moose Jaw Health Foundation’s Capital Equipment Campaign has come to an end. After exceeding its $8-million campaign goal with a total of $8,275,608, the campaignto equip the new Moose Jaw Regional hospital with state-of-the-art medical equipment is being hailed as a success.  Thank you so much to our donors and supporters.

“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 in the health region,” said Dave Reidy, Chair of the Capital Equipment Campaign. “When we first started out we thought it might be difficult to raise $8 million, but we had faith the community would step up. We’re proud of people throughout the Five Hills Health Region who helped us achieve our goal.”

With the opening of the new regional hospital, the Five Hills Health Region will be home to the newest and most innovative medical facility in Saskatchewan. Funds from the campaign will  be used to purchase the latest health care equipment, including:

  • MRI – the first in rural Saskatchewan
  • Surgical equipment
  • Labour and delivery equipment
  • Pediatric equipment
  • Dialysis equipment

“Although the Capital Equipment Campaign has concluded, our work as a Foundation continues,” said James Murdock, Chair of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation. “We’re going to stretch beyond our original capital equipment goal to fundraise for the hyperbaric chamber, as well as other medical equipment that was identified during the construction of the hospital. You’ll be hearing more about that in the near future.”

The stretch capital equipment campaign goal for the Foundation is $2,343,000.  With fundraising now underway for the stretch goal the Moose Jaw Health Foundation needs your support to build the new space for the hyperbaric chamber, the new chamber itself and additional cutting-edge medical equipment.

The new hospital will also be home to the only hyperbaric chamber located between Ontario and Alberta. With the community rallying to save the chamber during the campaign, the Moose Jaw Health Foundation is committed to refurbishing and revitalizing the chamber for future patients, as well as building the hyperbaric space onto the new regional hospital.
