Harvard Broadcasting’s Radiothon is back for Day two today with the goal of raising more money for Saskatchewan’s future Children’s Hospital.
Construction of the building is now 70 per-cent complete, with crews expecting to have the facility 100 per-cent watertight by the end of November.
Saskatchewan’s Health Minister Jim Reiter says the support has been incredible.
“I think it shows how committed the people of this province are to supporting this facility,” Reiter said. “That state-of-the-art facility does help recruit specialists.

Reiter says Saskatchewan families already dealing with the tough situation of having a sick child will be able to stay closer to home when the building is complete.
Something he believes will make a tough situation much less stressful.
“We just believe that having the opportunity for their children to stay in the province to receive specialized treatment in a state-of-the-art facility is going to make this much less stressful for them,”Reiter said.
Reiter says with construction now over 70 per-cent complete it’s an exciting time for Saskatchewan.
“When you think about where we were just a few short years ago,” Reiter said. “And to see where the facility is at right now is amazing. We’re just so happy to see how the people of the province have rallied around the hospital.”
