Patient and Family Resource Centre opens at Royal University Hospital, Saskatoon

The Patient and Family Resource Centre provides comfortable seating, five computer stations with internet access, a printer and, books and magazines. Patients and their families will also have easy access to information on local accommodations and amenities. "Such information can assist patients and family members who may be unfamiliar with regional or local services," says Keller. The Centre can connect patients and their families with library resources, patient education materials and additional resources within Saskatoon Health Region. "Clients can use the Centre as a starting point to access translation services, spiritual care, social work services, client representatives and other services," explains Keller. Funds for the Centre have been provided through donor support of the Royal University Hospital Foundation. "We are pleased to support such a valuable initiative for patients and their families," says RUHF Chair Bill Johnson. "It's our sincerest hope that patients and families find this centre to be a source of comfort and information." The Centre will be staffed by volunteers who will be able to assist patients and families in gathering information and establishing connections to existing Saskatoon Health Region resources
