Thank you to all our sponsors, donors and participants!

It was a fantastic day and revenues of more than $110,000 were achieved!

Net profits from the 7th Annual Golf Tournament and Fundraising Dinner will be added to the Equipment Fund for the new Weyburn & District Hospital.

THANK YOU!


Our hospital in Weyburn has provided 65 years of quality health care. However, as health care technologies advance and our communities grow, so does the need for a new hospital. Since 2008, the Weyburn & District Hospital Foundation has been working with various stakeholders including the Sun Country Health Region, Saskatchewan Government, and local governments in pursuit of our vision for a new hospital. The Weyburn & District Hospital Foundation continues to raise funds to improve health care in our region.

Not only is a new hospital necessary, new medical equipment is required. Better health care does not come simply from a new building and good medical practitioners, but also requires state of the art diagnostic and treatment equipment. Thank you for the donations and commitments received to date. These have been for the capital construction of the new hospital. There is still more to do. Equipment must be locally funded. That money needs to be available to order the new equipment when construction of the new hospital begins. There is a long list of required equipment some of which include: Portable Cardiac Monitors (estimated cost $200,000), Ultrasound (estimated cost $150,000), Computer Radiography (estimated cost $900,000), Blood Bank and Hematology Analyzer (estimated cost $150,000) and a Portable Digital X-ray (estimated cost $150,000).

Sun Country Health Region is holding the Funds in Trust that were raised for a new hospital, previous to the incorporation of this Foundation.

The City of Weyburn has collected a levy since 2012. As per their 2015 Audited Financial Statements (Page 18, Note 13): The City implemented a $140 per dwelling unit levy in 2012 for a 15 year period. This levy is to be provided as support to the Weyburn Hospital Foundation as part of the Community Contribution for a new hospital in Weyburn. This levy has been included in other liabilities in the amount of $2,542,049 (2014 - $1,867,389). No disbursements have been made to date.

There are many ways to support a new hospital. With every day that passes, we are one more donation, special event, or pledge closer to reaching our goal. We invite you to explore our website and discover how you can be part of "building a healthy future” for current residents, surrounding communities, and generations to come!
