Cardiac care at Regina’s hospitals will reach a new level of excellence, thanks to the next chapter of the partnership between Hospitals of Regina Foundation and The Mosaic Company (Mosaic). Mosaic has pledged a $1 million match for donations from the community, in support of the Foundation’s Cardiac Care Campaign for the Mosaic Heart Centre at Regina General Hospital. This exceptional commitment means every donor dollar will have double the impact. 
 
“Twelve years ago, Mosaic invested in cardiac care for the people of Saskatchewan and created a centre of excellence called the Mosaic Heart Centre,” said Karen Swager, senior vice president, potash at The Mosaic Company. “It’s now time to renew our commitment and ensure our communities have access to the very best, cutting-edge treatments and procedures right here at home. We are excited to announce a $1 million matching donation to help save lives in our province.”
 
The campaign will support the purchase of life-saving equipment and technology for the Cardiac Catheterization Lab (Cath lab) within the Mosaic Heart Centre. Doctors at the lab diagnose and treat numerous heart issues using leading edge imaging technology. The centre was established in 2006 through a $6.2 million investment by the Foundation, including a lead gift of $2.5 million by Mosaic. The Cath lab was established at the same time, and many of the critical systems within the lab have now reached the end of their life span.

“This is a landmark time in the history of cardiac care in southern Saskatchewan,” said Dino Sophocleous, president and CEO, Hospitals of Regina Foundation. “With Mosaic’s leadership and support from our community, we will continue to support cardiac care services in our hospitals for many years to come, and help people in southern Saskatchewan live better lives.”
