More on DiscoverWeyburn

Our hospital in Weyburn has provided over 60 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 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 fundedThat 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).
