A Quarter Century of Dedication: Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO Brynn Boback-Lane Transitions to “Rewire-ment”

After a quarter century at the helm of the province’s premier medical facility for kids – Brynn Boback-Lane the CEO and President of the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation is stepping away from the post, and moving down the road to retirement – although she is reluctant to call it that.

“I’m calling it something a little different – rewire-ment,” Boback-Lane said in an interview with CKRM’s Good Morning Saskatchewan.

Being a part of the fabric of this province is something she says she will continue to do – sighting a love for this community as something that will continue to drive her pursuits in the future.

More than two hundred and twenty-one million dollars has been raised for the hospital over the course of Boback-Lane’s 25 year tenure in the post.

“It’s really interesting when we wonder if we did the right thing, I’ll give you a little bit of a statistic that’s really staggering. This past year alone, over 80,000 visits were made to Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital from from 499 communities – I think we got it right”.

In 2020, Brynn Boback-Lane received the Children’s Healthcare Canada Award for Individual Leadership. This prestigious award honors individuals who have devoted their careers to enhancing the health of children and youth in Canada.

Brynn has been a pillar of Saskatchewan pediatric care – and her pursuits have affected thousands of sick kids and their families. While her work with the hospital will be missed – when asked what is next for her – she simply said – “stay tuned”
