Who We Are

Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation is a public Foundation (April, 1992) dedicated to the enrichment of patient care by acting as the fundraising agency for Battlefords Union Hospital. BUH Foundation, operating independently of other health care organizations, supports funding for the purchase of capital and non-capital equipment and staff education at BUH.  Through a bequest from Victor Pearsall in 2011, BUH Foundation began the Victor Pearsall Home Care Fund, allowing funding for Battlefords Region Home Care.

Mission:  Through responsible stewardship of community contributions and volunteer resources, Battlefords Union Hospital Foundation is dedicated to enriching patient care at BUH and through Battlefords Region Home Care.

Vision:  Excellence in Health Care through community engagement.

BUH Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors made up of a maximum of 12 members.  The Directors serve three consecutive 2-year terms, for a maximum of six years of service and bring to the Foundation a variety of backgrounds, offering their unique skills and talents to ensure the Foundation's success.

All Board Members contribute their time and effort without any payment or benefit, other than the satisfaction of contributing to the community.  They are a working Board, as members serve on various committees, such as one of the five main fundraisers or other ongoing projects.
