2014 In Review
This was an important year for the Health Foundation of East Central Saskatchewan because it needed to show the government it could raise money for a new regional hospital, and still do what it normally does.
The Foundation was able to do that because it had a lot of help, especially from the farm community and the Yorkton farm implement dealers. More than 5,000 donations were made to The Health Foundation this year, which means people strongly supported its work. During the year, $538,000 was spent to purchase equipment and support staff education, and another $340,000 was set aside for the new hospital. Read the complete story >>
