Mission Possible: Operation New O.R.

We are all pre-op.

Did you know 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’s when.

RUH’s world class surgical teams do the most complex and specialized types of surgeries involving the heart, brain, spine and cancers, to name a few, each year in Saskatchewan.

Many of these complex surgeries require a multidisciplinary team often consisting of between 8 to 12 highly skilled professionals who require 4 to 8 hours or longer to complete lifesaving procedures.

Modern medicine demands better. You and these world-class professionals deserve better.

Your mission:

Donate to help us raise $20 million+ to help fund new state-of-the-art equipment and other enhancements to the hospital’s operating rooms and associated areas that were built in 1978.

Something unexpected happened to both of us…

It’s not something you think can happen to you, but suddenly, we both required surgery within the same month – in the middle of a global pandemic.

Surgical backlog and wait times are at an all-time high due to the pandemic and it is putting tremendous pressure on the medical teams. We know that there is an urgent need for advanced and modern technology and equipment for our surgical teams who will care for those who need it the most and have waited for the longest for it.

With YOUR help we can get them the right tools to best tackle the surgical backlog post-pandemic. Donate today.

It could be your life on the table.

We want the people of Saskatchewan to have the world’s best surgical care right here at home. We have the expertise. What we need is state-of-the-art equipment – and the donors like YOU to make it possible!

Saskatchewan will come together to build a world class centre of surgical excellence.
