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 32nd year 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 $35,000,000 to help medical professionals save lives.

The overwhelming support of donors has raised funds recently for:

  • Rural Saskatchewan's first MRI
  • Surgical Equipment
  • Portable Ultrasound and X-Ray Equipment
  • 128 Slice CT Scanner
  • Hyperbaric Chamber
  • Panda Beds for the Women's Health Unit

 “With donor support the Foundation was 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 our goals each year for the last 31 years is a tremendous accomplishment for not only Moose Jaw, but for every community that need medical services that only the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital can provide.  It is important that we have the newest best medical equipment at our hospital 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 helping patients at our hospital. The medical equipment purchased saves lives every day and brings comfort to patients and their families in their time of need.

The work of the Foundation  never stops,” said James Murdock, Chair of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation. “We will be working closely with the Saskatchewan Health Authority to identify additional cutting edge medical equipment and services to enhance direct patient care. The Foundation has for the past 31 years and will continue in the future to be dedicated to help medical professionals save and enhance the lives of people in Moose Jaw and surrounding communities at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital.  Thank you so much for your support.
