Message from the Volunteer Chair of the Foundation

In Saskatchewan, we’ve been through tough times before.

From low prices for our valuable agricultural, energy and mining resources to floods and fires that wipe out entire communities, we’ve been through difficult times.

Yet, we’ve always persevered and emerged stronger.

Today, we are facing another one of those tough times. However, the battle against COVID-19 is unlike any that we’ve encountered in our lifetimes. It’s changing the way we work, the way we live, the way we socialize and the way we think about our health.

As Volunteer Chair of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation, I hope the COVID-19 outbreak also has you thinking about how you can help support health care in our community. The Moose Jaw Health Foundation has created the COVID-19 Pandemic Emergency Response Fund to support the highest priority needs at our hospital during the pandemic. I encourage you to support this vital initiative.

The fund will help support the changing needs of patients and healthcare workers as the pandemic evolves. Every dollar raised will stay in our community. The fund will leverage the work of the Saskatchewan Health Authority and the provincial and federal governments to allow our medical care professionals to provide the best possible care in Moose Jaw.

"Although COVID-19 is causing many things in our world to change, one thing that has not changed is our commitment to the high-quality care we provide you and your loved ones at the Dr. F. H. Wigmore Regional Hospital. My colleagues and I will be there to look after all of your medical needs during these uncertain times. We’ve trained our entire careers for these situations and we’re prepared to handle whatever comes our way.

 However, we need your assistance to make sure we have the necessary medical equipment to help patients when they need it most.  Please support the Foundation’s campaign."

Lindsay Stewart, Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital Intensive Care Unit Nurse

At this time of year, the Moose Jaw Health Foundation would usually be gearing up for Radiothon. The pandemic changed everything, so the Foundation quickly shifted its focus to support critical care for an influx of potential new patients from Moose Jaw and other communities coming to Moose Jaw. Hospitals in Saskatchewan are working in a coordinated effort to provide the best care for COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients in the province. The Foundation’s fund will evolve to meet the changing needs of patients during the pandemic, so please consider giving the gift of life by supporting the COVID-19 Pandemic Emergency Response Fund.

Your donations will help provide us with important lifesaving equipment. The better equipped we are, the better our health professionals will be able to care for you, your friends and your loved ones. Right now, we need each other like never before. We’re Saskatchewan strong and can get through these tough times together.

Donations to the COVID-19 Pandemic Emergency Fund will save lives today and leave a legacy of care for tomorrow. We would also appreciate you including the Moose Jaw Health Foundation when you’re planning your estate. Your contributions will be recognized on the digital donor wall in the hospital lobby as a constant reminder of how our community stood together during the pandemic.

On behalf of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation and the patients and healthcare professionals that will benefit from your generosity, please support the COVID-19 Pandemic Emergency Response Fund. Every donation will make a difference – regardless of the size.

Thank you for caring about our community!
