Hospital will be renamed Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital
The Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan will be getting a new name following the largest private donation in Saskatchewan history.
The $285-million construction project adjacent to Royal University Hospital will now be known as the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital. Pattison was on hand Tuesday as officials announced his $50-million pledge to support equipment purchases and research.
At a news conference, Pattison was presented with a construction vest and hard hat to symbolize the ongoing work on the hospital.
