SASKATOON — St. Paul’s Hospital (SPH) and the Saskatoon Health Region (SHR) renewed their Partnership Agreement at the SPH Annual General Meeting June 25 in Saskatoon.
“As an independently owned Catholic Hospital, we are pleased to continue our rewarding partnership with the Saskatoon Health Region while advancing the mission set forth by the Grey Nuns when they founded the hospital,” said Jean Morrison, SPH CEO.
“Our hospital has always focused on meeting unmet needs and addressing the needs of the most vulnerable. Central to our mission is holistic care — providing care to anyone who needs it regardless of their background and placing equal attention on caring for their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being,” Morrison said.
“This unique partnership between our health region and St. Paul’s Hospital has served the many people who use our hospitals as we strive to put our patients, clients, residents and their families first,” said Dan Florizone, Saskatoon Health Region president and CEO.
“There have been many changes in the health care system since this partnership began and we have worked together to ensure we adjust to continually improve the care to our community, and prevent redundancy and inefficiency,” said Florizone.
The 10-year renewal of the partnership agreement facilitates continued plans for Saskatoon Health Region and St. Paul’s Hospital to work together to implement improvements and explore new solutions to advance the quality of health care. St. Paul’s Hospital manages 10 regional programs at its hospital and throughout the region, and works collaboratively with the region to manage programs and services within St. Paul’s.
Owned by the bishops of Saskatchewan through the Saskatchewan Catholic Health Corporation, St. Paul’s Hospital is an acute-care teaching hospital that has been offering a comprehensive range of health care services to the people of Saskatoon and Saskatchewan for more than a century. A progressive teaching and applied research hospital, St. Paul’s is well known for the holistic care it provides and leadership in the areas of palliative care, urology, renal care and spiritual care.
