Hospice at Glengarda

St. Paul’s Hospital is opening a 15-bed community-based hospice, located at 301 Hilliard Street East, under the ownership of Emmanuel Health and with the support of St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation. The facility will operate in partnership with the Saskatchewan Health Authority with support from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health.

Here’s the latest update.

Over the weeks ahead, we’ll see walls going up as the crews work to enclose the building before the cold weather hits.

Construction is expected to take about a year, with the goal of opening the 15-bed hospice in Fall 2020.

St. Paul’s Hospital is thankful to the community for your patience throughout the demolition phase and renovation/construction of the hospice.

The Hospital Foundation is progressing well with their fundraising for the $20 million Close to Home campaign – this is a comprehensive campaign that includes not only the money needed to build the hospice, but also targets other important advancements for end-of-life care in Saskatoon and area.

There will be many opportunities for volunteering at the hospice once it is open – more information about how to volunteer will be shared in the months ahead.

Further updates will be shared in the weeks and months ahead as the project progresses.
