SASKATOON – Patients in Saskatoon are benefitting from record funding allocated by the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation (SPHF) last year.

Through the generosity of its donors and investments, SPHF contributed over $ 3.1 million to St. Paul’s Hospital in 2013.

SPHF’s funds were used to buy medical equipment, support capital improvements and improve patient comfort care at the hospital.

Last year, the foundation committed $1.4 million for a digital transmission electron microscope, which was unveiled this month.

Employees also benefitted from $82,000 in learning opportunities through the professional and organizational development awards.

“Whether they are philanthropists, grateful patients and their families, corporations, or employees, our donors have a genuine concern for the health of the people of Saskatchewan,” said SPHF CEO Bruce Acton.

St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation has allocated over $48 million since its inception in 1982.
