The legacy we leave is part of the ongoing foundations of life. Those who came before leave us the world we live in. Those who will come after will have only what we leave them. We are stewards of this world, and we have a calling on our lives to leave it better than how we found it, even if it seems like such a small part. ~ Jim Rohn, business philosopher It is with pleasure that we present our 2011-2012 Annual Report to the community: Leaving a Legacy. As you read stories about the activities and successes of the past year, you will be reminded of how important this legacy of giving has been to patient care, research and education. When the then University Hospital opened its doors in 1955, the cardiologists of the day, Drs. Horlick and Lopez, had a dream of establishing a program to treat Saskatchewan patients with heart rhythm disorders. Through the generosity of donors to the Every Heart Matters Campaign, that dream has become reality, and the Royal University
Hospital is now home to Saskatchewan’s first full-time Cardiac Electrophysiology Laboratory and Program. Since our inception in 1983, your Foundation has remained committed to funding initiatives not traditionally or fully supported by government operating dollars. We have raised $83,582,805 and invested these funds to enhance the patient care experience, to support knowledge expansion through education and training, and to advance medical research that improves treatment practices. Thanks to the generosity of so many, the Foundation raised approximately $6.2 million in 2011-2012 through donations, endowment gifts, events, lotteries and gaming, and investment income. Fundraising, event and administrative costs accounted for $1.6 million. The balance of $4.6 million was available for granting in the current and future years. Grants of $2.1 million including $390 thousand for research, $170

thousand for education and training, and $1.6 million for patient care and capital projects were committed. The balance of $2.5 million remains available for future granting through the Every Heart Matters Campaign and through endowments. In the past year, the Foundation continued its commitment to ensuring all activities deliver appropriate financial returns, while working with Saskatoon Health Region’s leadership to define future priorities. Making this work possible are Foundation and Hospital volunteers and staff who remain dedicated to our purpose of creating excellence in and impacting health care by raising funds to anticipate and respond to needs for research, education and patient care. If you’ve ever wondered if your gift to the RUH Foundation really makes a difference, we know you will find proof positive in the stories told on the following pages. Thank you!

Being exceptional is a high standard to achieve. At Saskatoon Health Region, we are very fortunate to be surrounded by exceptional people and partnerships that assist us in achieving our vision of healthiest people, healthiest communities, exceptional service.
Maura Davies President and CEO Saskatoon Health Region
The exceptional care that our physicians, nurses, health care professionals and volunteers are able to provide is greatly assisted by the generous donors of the Royal University Hospital Foundation. From providing stateof-the-art equipment, to assisting professional development of health
care professionals with research and teaching opportunities, RUHF donors are contributing to exceptional care and enhanced quality and safety. For example, the Every Heart Matters Campaign is raising the standard for life-saving cardiac care through the development of a fully functional Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) laboratory and program. Having this level of cardiac care available here in Saskatoon will transform the experience of patients with heart rhythm disorders, not just in the Region but across the province. The Every Heart Matters
Campaign is surging toward its goal of $5.5 million thanks to the generosity of donors who also include grateful patients and their families. They will leave a legacy. From exceptional people and partnerships come exceptional care. Saskatoon Health Region is proud and grateful for the relationship between the Region and the Foundation. Together we are improving and transforming care, services and programs for the patients, families and communities we serve. Exceptionally.
Construction has begun, and soon the province’s first full-time Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) laboratory and program will open at Royal University Hospital to treat people living with heart rhythm disorders. The imminent lab is the result of the $5.5 million Every Heart Matters Campaign that launched in September 2011. The lab will be open for public tours from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20 at RUH. Over the past decade, RUH’s excellent Cardiology program has grown to the cutting edge of cardiac care supported by 12 cardiologists under the leadership of Dr. Jawed Akhtar, Head of Cardiology, and Dr. Rashpal Basran, former Head of Cardiology. Their passion is to complete the program with the addition of this final, integral program so essential to modern cardiac care – the establishment of a full-time EP program and lab. “Every facet of Cardiology is growing and
Electrophysiology ties it all together. It’s that important,” says Dr. Akhtar. Starting in 2009, EP procedures were conducted one day per week at RUH using equipment purchased through RUH Foundation donations. Although that schedule has since been ramped up to two cases per day, two days per week, the patient waiting list is twelve months long and growing. In April 2011, patients needing the surgical implantation of Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs) were able to have the procedure performed at RUH. Patients previously had to travel to Regina or Calgary for the procedure. EP cardiologists Dr. Kelly Coverett and Dr. Carlo Stuglin studied medicine at the University of Saskatchewan and then received their advanced training in Cardiac Electrophysiology at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary. Funding support from the RUH Foundation Royal Care Campaign for the specialized training included

agreement that the two would return to practice in Saskatchewan for at least four years. “We were more than happy to complete this training and bring it back to Saskatchewan,” says Dr. Coverett. “This will bring our Region and our Cardiology division on par with those in the rest of the country. We‘re very happy about that.”
Royal University Hospital Foundation
Because a third electrophysiologist is necessary in order for the new EP lab to operate five days per week, a third cardiologist, Dr. Stephen Wardell, has been recruited to train in this subspecialty of Cardiology and bring his skills back to RUH.

replacement. In 2001 she had a heart attack, and in the years since developed heart failure due to a heart rhythm disorder.
Patient Ambassador Lorna Callbeck and her daughters
In poor health and unable to wait any longer, Ruth travelled to Calgary for Cardiac EP treatment.Within a month, she was back in the pool at the YWCA.
The new Cardiac EP lab and program at RUH will have a huge impact on the lives of people suffering from heart rhythm disorders – people including Lorna Callbeck, Ruth Harker and Dan Lewans. Lorna calls her life “a journey of the heart.” Born with a heart defect, she suffered heart failure at the young age of two. At ten, she underwent corrective heart surgery. Now as an adult, she suffers from a heart rhythm disorder that causes her heart to race uncontrollably and requires ongoing cardiac care. Lorna could travel to another province for this procedure but has opted to stay close to home and her daughters, Cassie and Madison, hoping this procedure will be available soon.
Patient Ambassador Ruth Harker
“I want to be treated near the people who know me and with the cardiology team at RUH that has been treating me with love and kindness since I was born,” she says. Unlike Lorna, Ruth Harker couldn’t wait. An active volunteer and an even more active grandmother, Ruth’s heart problems began 25 years ago. She underwent a variety of medical procedures including an angiogram, open heart surgery and aortic valve
“I was able to exercise again. I wasn’t short of breath any longer. I could keep up with – well, follow – my grandchildren,” she said. “It gave my husband peace of mind.” Sadly, Ruth passed away in late February. Her family says she was proud to be an ambassador for the Every Heart Matters Campaign because she knew the importance of bringing full-time EP treatment to Saskatchewan so that others, like her, could live life to the fullest. Cardiac EP treatment has also made a difference in Dan Lewans’ life. Five years ago, Dan began suffering from shortness of breath, fainting spells and, eventually,

congestive heart failure. At RUH, he was diagnosed with a heart rhythm disorder. As an outdoor enthusiast, this seriously curtailed his enjoyment of life. At the time, the Cardiac EP team at RUH was trialling advanced equipment for the new EP lab. Using this technology, the EP cardiologist was able to identify the area of Dan’s heart that was misfiring and treat the irregular heartbeat. Within days of the procedure, Dan was enjoying the outdoors again – to the great relief of his children and his wife, Pauline. “I’m completely cured and feeling 100 per cent,” reports Dan.

rom the Heart
The Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation (KTF) knows how important it is for Saskatchewan people to have a Cardiac EP lab and program at RUH. The KTF stepped forward to provide the last piece of our vision for a complete cardiac program. Their generous donation of $1.5 million ensures that, by being treated for heart rhythm disorders right here in Saskatchewan, patients and their families will not have to face the emotional and financial burdens of leaving our province for care. Since 1989, the KTF has donated more than $2.6 million for advanced health care at RUH including the first MRI in Saskatchewan, the first Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units, the first newborn screening program for identification of hearing loss and now, most recently, a cutting-edge cardiac care program for the treatment of heart rhythm disorders.
For its contribution to patient care at RUH over the years, the Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation was honoured this past year at the 11th annual National Philanthropy Day Luncheon.
“It’s wonderful to have such caring partners in health care,” says Arla Gustafson, CEO of the RUH Foundation. “They have touched the lives of everyone in our province.”

Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation’s transformational donation to the Every Heart Matters Campaign
Pu t t i n g t h e
The success of the Every Heart Matters Campaign is due in part to the strong support from health care staff and volunteers at RUH.
Drs. Carlo Stuglin and Kelly Coverett have been instrumental in the campaign from the very beginning. “As physicians, we are very committed to advancing this important cardiac program at RUH,” they say. “That’s why we have spoken out and addressed the community, stressing the vital importance of establishing a dedicated EP program. We don’t want to practice medicine elsewhere – and we don’t want patients or their loved ones to have to go elsewhere for this treatment.” All Cardiology departments within RUH got into the spirit last Christmas season, when each showed its support for Every Heart Matters during the RUH Personnel Association’s annual Wreath Auction fundraiser held during the Christmas social. Lisa Bergen, Manager
un in Fundraising
of the Cardiac EP program, challenged all other Cardiology departments to see whose wreath could raise the most money during the auction. The Cardiac Device Clinic’s “win” earned them bragging rights. The Clinic’s wreath featured gift cards. Karen Dunford, a retired Food and Nutrition employee, raised the most money as an individual for her “Shimmering Delight” wreath. Overall, the auction raised $2,758 for the Every Heart Matters Campaign. Furthermore, the strong support of physicians, nurses, health care professionals, staff and volunteers at RUH is evident by the number who are “buttoning up” in support of their hospital. To say “Thank You” to the many people who work at RUH, the Foundation held “Button Up” days in February and March. In return for donations to the Foundation, donors received special

“I Support RUHF” buttons and wore them proudly! Those spotted wearing their buttons won prizes. The Foundation plans to hold “Button Up” days twice a year to continue recognizing RUH staff for their support of excellence in health care.
B R INGING IT
Thanks to the hard work of volunteers in the community, the Royal University Hospital Foundation came one step closer to bringing home the Every Heart Matters Campaign.
On March 28, 2012, RUH Foundation partnered with Cameco Corporation for the “Bring It Home Radio-a-thon” with all proceeds dedicated to the campaign. During the radio-a-thon with CJWW and Magic 98.3, people from more than
40 communities across Saskatchewan gave from the heart and donated either by phone, in-person at Market Mall or online. Cameco matched those donations up to $125,000 and brought the grand total raised to $400,521.29! “Cameco is making a difference in our community and knows how important it is to have this standard of life-saving care for people in Saskatchewan,” says Arla Gustafson, CEO of the RUH Foundation.

“We are just thrilled with the generosity of Saskatchewan people,” adds John Cross, Volunteer Chair of the campaign. “We knew we were undertaking an ambitious campaign when we began, but after such a successful radio-a-thon, we knew we would soon reach the goal of $5.5 million.” Radio-a-thon donations helped establish the province’s first full-time Cardiac Electrophysiology lab and program at RUH to treat people living with

heart rhythm disorders. An abnormal heartbeat can lead to sudden cardiac arrest. Forty thousand people in Canada die of cardiac arrest each year – twelve hundred in Saskatchewan alone. Saskatchewan has been one of only two Canadian provinces without this full-time standard of care. That has meant that until now, many people in our province living with heart rhythm disorders (one in four Canadians) either have waited for treatment here or have had to seek it elsewhere.

Million-Dollar Man Homegrown hockey star Jarret Stoll of the Los Angelos Kings has left a legacy for young patients and their families at RUH. After just six years, the Jarret Stoll Celebrity Golf Classic raised a total of $1 million (after expenses) for the Jarret Stoll Patient Comfort Fund Endowment for Children at RUH. Investment earnings on the endowment purchase many items important to the care and comfort of children and their families while in the hospital.
“This endowment will help children and their families at RUH for generations to come,” says Arla Gustafson, CEO of the RUH Foundation. This amazing million-dollar milestone was announced June 24, 2011, as the sixth annual golf tournament wrapped up at the Moonlake Golf & Country Club. The RUH Foundation thanks Jarret Stoll and all the hockey celebrities who came to play over the years, as well as the golfers and the tournament sponsors. Special thanks go
to our presenting sponsor, Saskatoon and Region Home Builders’ Association. “Kids are the epitome of life, and this was a rare opportunity to golf and socialize with NHLers while raising money to help make a sick child’s hospital experience the best that it can be,” says Jarret. “I’m a firm believer that a hospital is not just about treating illness and injury, but also about comfort and healing.” Jarret grew up in Saskatchewan, so he’s giving back to his home province. Raised in Neudorf and Yorkton, he wears #28 for the LA Kings. The number is personally significant because his grandfather was born in 1928, and Jarret was born in 1982.

Royal University Hospital Auxiliary Creates Million Dollar Legacy Endowment
Arla Gustafson, CEO RUH Foundation; Alice Hamp, President RUH Auxiliary; Bill Johnson, Chair RUH Foundation Board of Directors; and Gloria Reid, RUH Auxiliary Member sign the Legacy Endowment.
After more than 55 years of giving, the Royal University Hospital Auxiliary has made a legacy gift that will last far into the future. Last October, past and present members of the Auxiliary created the Royal University Hospital Auxiliary Endowment Fund with a $1.125 million gift to the RUH Foundation. Annual earnings will support the priority purchase of medical equipment and furnishings at RUH as well as fund annual Auxiliary scholarships and education. RUH Auxiliary President Alice Hamp is overwhelmed to be in a position where the Auxiliary can make such a generous donation.
“It is history in the making,” she says. “It’s a wonderful legacy for the Auxiliary to leave our hospital.” Since its inception in 1955, the Auxiliary has been providing care and comfort for patients and their families at RUH through volunteerism and fundraising. Since 1974, members have raised and invested $3.5 million in support of health care priorities at RUH. Now each and every year the Auxiliary Endowment will benefit patients, their families and staff at RUH. “This endowment will remind future generations of the great impact the women who created and volunteered as
Auxilians since 1955 have had on health care at RUH,” says Arla Gustafson, CEO of the RUH Foundation. “We know that others will want to make donations to this endowment, so it will continue to grow. We’re truly grateful for how hard the members of the Auxiliary have worked to preserve the efforts of past and present members.” Hamp says the Auxiliary wants to do whatever it can to help make a patient’s stay at RUH comfortable. “There’s a joy in giving and receiving,” she adds. “It’s a blessing for all.”
Bryan Woods Memorial Scholarship Bryan Woods, a skilled and respected clinician, teacher and leader in the field of social work, lost his battle to cancer in October 2010. For three decades, Bryan was highly respected as someone who supported his clients and colleagues with understanding, kindness, patience, gentle strength, dependability, professionalism and wit. After leaving Social Services in 2001, he became the Director and Professional Leader of Social Work for the Saskatoon Health Region. On the first anniversary of his passing, a group comprising his former colleagues, Saskatoon Health Region senior leadership,
friends and family sponsored a memorial lecture given by the Honourable Roy Romanow at the Broadway Theatre. Mr. Romanow, former Premier of Saskatchewan and Chair, Canadian Index of Well-Being Advisory Board, discussed a new national initiative that identifies and measures the overall well-being and quality of life of Canadians. There was no charge to attend the lecture, but people were asked to consider making a charitable donation to support the establishment of the Bryan Woods Scholarship for Social Work. More than $5,000 was raised and will support the
$500 scholarship that will be awarded to a social worker to assist with a formal education program or training that will further his or her knowledge and skills in a specific area of practice.
In addition to being a caring professional, Bryan loved the outdoors, especially camping, canoeing, fishing, cross-country skiing and cycling. He paddled many rivers, skied many loppets and in 2008 proudly cycled the 300-km Golden Triangle in mountainous Alberta/BC. He was a loving and supportive husband to Terri, father to Kristen and Michael and brother. Bryan was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in April 2009 and plasma cell leukemia in February 2010. He dealt with his illness in the same way he approached many of life’s challenges: with focus, determination and hope.
A Legacy of Caring – A Legacy of Giving For more than 30 years, Irene Anderson served her community as an operating room nurse at the Nipawin Hospital. When she passed away in January 2011, she left a legacy of caring for the future by including both her home hospital and Royal University Hospital in her last bequest.
Irene Anderson receives recognition for her long-standing service at the Nipawin Hospital in 1984.
Her estate gift of $35,000 to the RUH Foundation supports the Every Heart Matters Campaign, which is raising $5.5 million for a laboratory and program in the advanced sub-specialty of cardiology called Cardiac Electrophysiology (Cardiac EP).
Irene and her husband, Eric, have been long-time annual supporters of RUH, so it was not completely unexpected when Irene included the hospital in her will. “We talked it over together and this is something we both wanted to do,” said Eric, a retired farmer. He added that they chose to make a planned gift in support of RUH where both received cancer treatments, while at the same time lowering their income tax bill. In memory of his wife, Eric also made a donation of $40,000 for respiratory health at RUH. A portion of his gift was allocated to the purchase of EBUS (Endobronchial
Ultrasound) equipment, which is used for the early and non-surgical detection of lung cancer and other lung diseases. The acquisition of this $300,000 cutting-edge tool was a key factor in the recruitment of respiratory specialist Dr. Chris Hergott to RUH in 2010. “We are so grateful to the Andersons for including RUH in their wills. Their gifts will help make a difference in the lives of so many people who will benefit from these advanced treatments,” says Lisa Laskowski, the RUH Foundation’s Director of Development.

Royal Medieval Feast Chair Shari Bedient with husband Gord
Royal Medieval Feast The Guild of Friends is a special group of donors who have made provisions through endowments, wills, trusts and other means to create a legacy of giving that will continue long into the future. Estate of Irene Anderson Estate of Artha M. Branscombe Estate of James Robert Caldwell Estate of George Hambleton George and Marion Horton Bryan Isinger Estate of James Alexander Kippan Dan Kemmer A. Jean MacKenzie J. Herb McFaull Floyd T. McNabb Margaret Petersen Estate of Norman Ratke Oscar and Mary Slaght Mary H. Smith Neil Sutherland
Goblets clinked and forks clattered as a record 280 lords and ladies enjoyed bounteous food and drink at the RUH Foundation’s Royal Medieval Feast, raising $100,000 in proceeds for the Every Heart Matters Campaign. “The success of this event means many more people with heart rhythm disorders can be treated right here in Saskatchewan,” said Shari Bedient, Volunteer Chair of the event.
Royal Express The Royal Express was unveiled at Royal University Hospital on April 14, 2011. The Royal Express is an electric cart, driven by volunteers, to assist patients and clients to move throughout the main floor of Royal University Hospital. This past year, nearly 12,000 people rode the Royal Express! It runs Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., taking a circular route through the hospital to cover most of the main stopping points that patients and clients need to access. The Royal Express was made possible through donations to the RUH Foundation.
Remembering… a friend, a family member, a caregiver, a colleague who has touched your life and made the world a better place. The Royal University Hospital Foundation thanks those family members and friends who paid tribute to these special people between April 1, 2011 and March 31, 2012.
