Jackie Mann, Vice-President Acute Care and Project Sponsor of Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan, brings an update on behalf of the Health Region on planning for the new hospital during Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan’s Saskatoon radiothon.

From February 1-3, the fundraiser held on Saskatoon Media Group stations Magic 98.3, 92.9 The Bull and 600 CJWW focused on raising money to purchase new equipment that can be put to use right now and will be transferred over to the new hospital when it opens. This year’s radiothon included participation from Health Region staff , physicians and families who have been involved in designing the new maternal and children’s hospital. The radiothon raised $407,484 dollars with CHFS giving special thanks to Wally and Colleen Mah of Northridge Developments who matched the fi rst $200,000 in donations.
