2022 Mistletoe Ball and Baskets Raise Over $215,600 for MRI Scanner
Thanks to everyone for the fantastic support of this year's Mistletoe Ball Baskets.
All proceeds will support a new state-of-the-art Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner upgrade.
Saskatchewan patients are benefiting from a state-of-the-art robotic-assisted surgical system that contributes to less pain and faster recovery times for patients.
Since September, more than two dozen surgeries have been performed at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon using the da Vinci Surgical System, the first program of its kind in the province. The $2.5 million system is being used in urology, with plans to expand to head and neck cancer, thoracic surgery and gynecological oncology.
“The da Vinci surgical system enables our surgical teams to perform more procedures while also helping support better patient outcomes and a positive health care experience,” said Andrew Will, CEO for the Saskatchewan Health Authority.
St. Paul's Hospital Foundation - Saskatoon’s capital campaign committed $1.5 million for the robot’s purchase, which includes a $1.1 million gift from the Merlis Belsher family. The Government of Saskatchewan provided a further $1 million.

Hospice and End-of-Life Care
Support End-of-Life Care at the Hospice at Glengarda and St. Paul’s Hospital’s Palliative Care Unit.
We know that government funding will cover clinical needs, but also understand that it simply will not provide support for comprehensive and compassionate holistic care programming for patients and families, nor any of the extra amenities that can truly contribute to a home-like patient and family experience. The Hospice at Glengarda will continue to rely on our community to support positive patient and family experiences as well as a broadly defined scope of holistic care programming, which encompasses mission, spiritual care, healing arts, and volunteer programming.
There are countless small touches that will create a home-like environment and experience for patients and families, things that would typically be part of what families would have in their own homes to create a warm and comforting space. It is our goal to provide patients and families with amenities at no cost, to have the hospice experience as Close to Home as possible.
You can help by donating to the following end-of-life-care funds:
- Giving Light for Palliative and Hospice Care: You can help bring a Vocera System to the Hospital’s Palliative Care Unit and support the Comfort Care fund at the Hospice at Glengarda. Make a gift today and philanthropists Utsang and Khyati Desai will match every dollar you donate to a maximum of $25,000. Click to read more
- The Comfort Care Fund: ensuring Holistic Care staff support and resources and comfort items to support the patient and family experience
- Palliative Care Education Fund: Responsive and sensitive end-of-life care requires specialized training for all staff and volunteers who will be involved with patients and families in the Hospice and the Hospital’s Palliative Care Unit.
- Facility Fund: serving capital and building services needs.
