Inland Steel Products Inc. donates $100,000 for upgrades to Cath Lab at RUH

March 27, 2024

Inland Steel Products Inc. is donating $100,000 to help fund much-needed upgrades in the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at Royal University Hospital (RUH).

The company’s generous gift will help doctors see more clearly inside one’s heart and perform minimally invasive procedures to prevent heart attacks and treat conditions like clogged arteries.

“Our interventional cardiology team is grateful for the support of Inland Steel Products in helping ensure we have the most modern technology and equipment available for diagnosing and treating some of the most life-threatening cardiac diseases,” says Dr. Jason Orvold, RUH medical director for the Cath Lab.

Saskatoon-based Inland Steel Products is a third-generation family metal recycling business founded in 1967. It owns and operates six facilities across Saskatchewan and Alberta.

“Our company and family have a tradition of giving back where we live and work and we want to ensure that continues,” says Inland Steel Products President Matt Ditlove. “We are thrilled to support enhanced cardiac care in Saskatoon.”

“I was specifically impressed with the vison, professionalism and dedication of cardiologist Dr. Colin Pearce,” added Mark Ditlove, Inland Steel Products Chairman and CEO. “Ensuring great health care providers like Dr. Pearce have top quality equipment to serve patients is critical.”

Royal University Hospital Foundation is extremely grateful for the support from Inland Steel Products in helping to raise $2.6 million for the Cath Lab upgrade.

The Cath Lab’s two suites are currently running at full capacity seeing more than 3,200 patients annually. The older of the two suites, in operation since 2013, is outdated and nearing the end of its life.

“The generous donation from Inland Steel Products will keep RUH’s dedicated interventional cardiology teams at the forefront of minimally invasive cardiac care in our province,” says Jennifer Molloy, CEO, RUH Foundation. “Together we are helping ensure patients from across Saskatchewan have access to the most advanced life-saving care today and for years to come.”
