With each day, the Pattison Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan gets one day closer to being open.
Construction of the facility in Saskatoon is nearing an end, but the Childrens Hospital Foundation is nowhere close to stopping its fundraising efforts to make sure everything that is needed is available.
The foundation has been chosen as the beneficiary of the “CP Has Heart” campaign which will be front and center at the LPGA’s Canadian Women Open–an event that Canadian Pacific is the title sponsor of.
Foundation president and CEO Brynn Boback-Lane says the funds raised will be going to one area of the hospital.
“When that children’s hospital opens, we’re going to have a brand new pediatric cardiac unit because of this golf tournament,” she said.
The Pediatric Outpatient Clinic will see an estimated 40,000 young patients using that area of the hospital every year.
