“I think it’s very impressive…I think the first floor is fantastic and a great place to have people over and have bit of a party,” said Dino Sophocleous, Hospitals of Regina Foundation CEO and president.

Through the community, HRF has invested more than $27 million in pediatric programs. HRF expects to raise about $2 million more from their spring 2020 home lottery.

“The lotteries raise over $4 million every year. Pediatrics is key to the foundation, very crucial to the foundation,” Sophocleous said.

“About 20 per cent of visits to our emergency rooms are pediatric in nature…we see about 10,000 children in our pediatrics every year.”

“We couldn’t do anything we do without the Hospitals of Regina Foundation. The money they raised and continue to raise provides the equipment we need,” Bayfield-Ash said.

“It provides in some cases the actual physical structure that we need — the rooms, the buildings.”
