Thank You Southwest Saskatchewan  

Thank to your generous support the Dr. Noble Irwin Regional Healthcare Foundation as able to hit our goal of $150,000 for our 14th annual Pharmasave Radiothon for Healthcare! As we always say every donation large & small matters to our goal, and we saw that come true during the Radiothon. Thanks to our kick-off sponsors, matching sponsors, and power hour sponsors for stepping up to match all donation to make sure every donation counted towards our goal! Thank you to our prize sponsors for generating us so much momentum to keep people engaged in donating so they had a chance to win amazing prizes! In total we had over $6,000 worth of prizing to giveaway in the two days.

With reaching our goal that means we are able to purchase essential equipment for the Cypress Regional Hospital to help the Doctors and Nurses save lives! This year we were raising funds for a new ACLTOP 350 Blood Analyzer as well as Ultrasound technology to insert PICC Lines bedside locally.


ACLTOP 350 Blood Analyzer performs coagulation testing which is useful in the assessment of bleeding patients and identification of patients at risk of bleeding (Before surgery). There are several local patients that require monitoring, many of them weekly. The testing that this analyzer does is most useful for those patients with a mechanical heart valve or pacemaker, stroke patients, and post-surgery patients. This will also be utilized by every department in the Cypress Regional Hospital.

A PICC line or Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter is something that once inserted into the patient, it can stay for up to 1 year so that the patient can receiver their life saving chemotherapy treatments, as well as other IV medications. Through a PICC line, healthcare staff can also draw blood which saves patients from the need to get poked constantly. Currently this procedure is only available in Saskatoon or Regina and is a procedure that only take 10-20 minutes to complete.

Thank You to Our Sponsors for Helping us Achieve our Goal
