The new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital (JPCH) in Saskatoon was showcased today, as partners achieved their vision of having Saskatchewan children and expectant mothers receive exceptional health care closer to home.
The JPCH will officially open to patients on September 29, when all pediatric and maternal inpatients will move in from Royal University Hospital and new admissions will be accepted.
Premier Scott Moe was joined by lead donor Jim Pattison, representatives from the Government of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) and Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation, donors and community members to celebrate the official grand opening of the hospital.
