Physicians & Staff
A hospital is little more than a shell without its medical team—those dedicated professionals who have devoted their careers to helping others through their medical milestones.
At the RUH Foundation, we celebrate and support their efforts with funding for the medical research, specialist training, professional development, scholarships and state-of-the-art equipment that help them do their jobs.
Dr. Janine Eckstein, Interventional Cardiologist, received her medical degree in Internal Medicine and Cardiology at the University of Saskatchewan. She knew early in her career that she wanted to sub-specialize in Interventional Cardiology.
Physicians who wish to sub-specialize after their Residency training may enter a Fellowship training program. Sub-specialists fill service gaps and advance patient care, research and training at RUH. Similar to Residency training seats, a Fellow cannot fund their Fellowship seat: funding must be provided by a third party.

In honour of their generosity, we named the Cardiac EP Lab at RUH the Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation Electrophysiology Laboratory. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
For over 25 years, Nutrien has supported advances in health care in our community, donating generously for patients and their families at Royal University Hospital.
A hospital is a place of hope and healing, of solace and sympathy. Our patients and their family members are grateful for the caring dedication of our medical professionals. And many want to give back by making a donation to the Royal University Hospital Foundation.
