An Evening with STARS is set to take stage on Tuesday, April 9th at McKenna Hall in Weyburn. Doors open for cocktails at 5:30 pm with the evening program kicking off at 6:15 pm. The affair will host special guests from the STARS Trauma Team, headed by CEO and President Andrea Robertson.

The goal for this fundraising event is to raise funds sufficient to build a helicopter emergency landing pad for the future new hospital to serve Weyburn and area. All proceeds will go to the Weyburn & District Hospital Foundation as we continue our efforts to build and equip a new hospital for Weyburn and Area.

This special fundraising dinner and social evening will also include representatives from our local service providers including the Weyburn Police Department, Weyburn Fire Brigade, Weyburn Emergency Medical Services, Weyburn General Hospital Staff members and the District RCMP Detachment who are stepping up to assist with table service and showcase some of their non-emergency talents.

There will be time to meet the STARS trauma team members and ask questions in addition to opportunities to bid on special items.

The evening promises to both informative as well as fun!

Tickets are 80% sold, so don’t wait to get yours!

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).

The City of Weyburn has collected a levy since 2012. As per their 2017 Audited Financial Statements (Page 14, 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 $4,048,246 (2016 - $3,217,129). 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!
