Home > Greatest Needs

There is a continuing need for funding due in part to the rapid advances being made in medical treatments available and the technology of today.


We want to provide the very best care to those who come to us.  New equipment is safer in design and in reliability. It allows for a wider scope of practice within our facility (less travel to Saskatoon) and it sends our medical staff the message that their efforts are appreciated and that the communities are standing behind them.

– Dr. Randall Friesen, Senior Medical Officer, PAPHR
