TD Bank and Health Foundation award over $27,000 for education

• Thank you to ZAG Enterprises and St. Mary's UCWL for supporting our campaign for new lab equipment for the regional hospital •

Improving health care in our region

The Health Foundation of East Central Saskatchewan, Inc. is a volunteer organization dedicated to being the leaders in continuously improving and expanding the quality of healthcare and medical services in east central Saskatchewan.

Our mission is to work in partnership with donors, the community, healthcare providers and government to raise and invest funds in capital and educational initiatives that will enhance healthcare services for our health region.

The Foundation is guided by a volunteer board, and operates independently from both the health region and government. It receives no money other than your much-appreciated donations.

Doug Jones, CEO of Cornerstone Credit Union, presented a cheque for $10,000 to Ross Fisher, Executive Director of The Health Foundation, to help put new lab equipment in place at the Yorkton Regional Hospital..  

“Cornerstone Credit Union understands it is very important to have current equipment in the lab of the regional hospital. The lab is often the first place your doctor sends you for tests if something doesn’t seem right, and more information is needed. Having good equipment in the lab makes sure our medical professionals have the right equipment to be able to do the best job they can for their patients,” Mr. Jones stated. Read more >>
