Did you know that the average Canadian has three surgeries in their lifetime?  If you think about it, it’s not a matter of if you or someone you love will need surgery it is when. Here in Saskatchewan, many of the most serious and specialized surgeries happen at Royal University Hospital, our province’s busiest hospital — 18,000 surgeries in 2019 alone. While our dedicated and knowledgeable surgeons, nurses and support teams at RUH are second to none, the 43-year-old operating rooms that they may need to save your life in are outdated and cramped. Modern medicine demands better. You and these world-class professionals deserve better. Royal University Hospital Foundation has committed to raise $20-million to transform surgical care at Royal University Hospital. Proceeds from RUH Foundation’s Royal Strange and Unusual Ball: “The Works of Tim Burton”, will help to build and equip new state-of-the-art operating rooms, reduce wait times and save and improve more lives at RUH.
