HRF Cardiac Care Campaign
In 2019, Hospitals of Regina Foundation launched a $2 million Cardiac Care Campaign, with longtime Foundation partner, The Mosaic Company that pledged to match donations from the community up to $1 million. Today we announce we have reached our goal!
The $2 million Mosaic Cardiac Fund, created through this campaign, will support the Cardiac Catheterization Lab’s (Cath Lab) priorities with the most up to date Fluoroscopy system, Dye injectors, an Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), and an Echocardiography machine - a specific ultrasound for the heart.
Last year, almost 2,300 people were treated at the Cath Lab, at the Mosaic Heart Centre in Regina. The Cath Lab diagnoses and treats coronary artery disease – critical heart problems related to the blockage of blood vessels to the heart.
“Back in 2006, Mosaic announced an investment in cardiac care for the people of Saskatchewan and created the Mosaic Heart Centre,” says Bruce Bodine - Senior Vice President, North America at The Mosaic Company. “Today, we proudly announce that together, we raised over two million dollars that will ensure medical teams and cardiac patients will continue to have access to life-saving equipment and exceptional care right here at home.”
“The Cardiac Care Campaign was a wonderful success, thanks to Mosaic’s philanthropic leadership and the amazing support we received from our community”, says Dino Sophocleous, president and CEO, Hospitals of Regina Foundation. “This new investment in the Mosaic Heart Centre will allow our medical teams to provide the best care possible for cardiac patients in Regina and southern Saskatchewan; we are grateful to Mosaic and our community for their support of this campaign and their commitment to our hospitals.”
