Surgical patients at Regina’s hospitals will benefit from the latest initiative in the long-standing partnership between Hospitals of Regina Foundation and Yara Belle Plaine. Yara has pledged a $500,000 match for community donations to the Foundation’s Surgical Campaign through the Yara Belle Plaine Surgical Fund. As a result of Yara’s generous commitment, donations made by the community will literally have double the impact.
 
“We are committed to supporting causes that make life better for our employees, their families, and our communities,” says Yara Belle Plaine President and Plant Manager George Pohorelic. “In addition to this new pledge, we’re proud to have contributed more than $650,000 since 1995 to Regina’s hospitals through the Foundation. We’re excited about this new chapter in our partnership, because we know the Yara Belle Plaine Surgical Fund will elevate the level of surgical care for all patients, and will undoubtedly save lives.”
 
The funds raised will help replace and upgrade the 30 year old surgical booms in the operating suites at Regina General and Pasqua Hospitals. The Foundation has pledged to raise $3 million through this Surgical Campaign. New surgical booms allow for safer use of medical gases such as anesthesia, oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide, as well as keeping monitors and other electronic devices conveniently located to make surgery even safer and more efficient.
 
“The Foundation greatly appreciates Yara Belle Plaine’s leadership in supporting improved surgical care in Regina’s hospitals,” says Dino Sophocleous, President and CEO, Hospitals of Regina Foundation. “Yara’s support will go a long way towards ensuring life-saving technology is available to help patients in southern Saskatchewan live better lives.”
