Impact Stories

Adrienne -A UHF patient

“I’m just so thankful once I got to the Mazankowski because when I ended up in critical care in Regina, my doctors and surgeons here in Saskatchewan said, “We don’t have the specialists and you’re going to die if you don’t leave.” So, I was emergently flown to the Maz and they saved my life at the Mazankowski multiple times.”

Dr. Robert Welsh

It’s not an exaggeration to say that support from donors is the key to everything that happens here at the Maz. From equipping doctors and surgeons with state-of-the-art technology to fully funding world class operating rooms and research facilities, community support has played a vital role in creating one of Western Canada’s leading medical sites.
