On Air for Heathcare Radio-thon
is an on-going campaign.
 Donations will be accepted throughout the year and an
official tax receipt will be issued.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated!!!


Your donation and support has the power to change the future of
healthcare at BUH.


Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation and CJNB/Q98/93.3 The Rock/ BattlefordsNOW of the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group have once again partnered to raise funds to provide enhanced healthcare for The Battlefords and surrounding communities.  The 2017 On Air for Healthcare Radio-thon will take place in BUH’s main lobby, Friday May 12th with broadcasting starting at 6:00am on all three radio stations.   Funds raised are for BUH Foundation’s 2017 capital campaign “Every Little Bit Counts: every little aching ear, tender nose and sore throat” and will be directed to support the purchase of surgical equipment for BUH’s recently recruited Ears, Nose & Throat (ENT) specialist.

BUH has been without an ENT specialist for the past two years and 60 – 65% of patients from The Battlefords and surrounding communities have had to be referred out of the Region to receive medical treatment.  This involves increased travel time and expenses for individuals and their families, as well as extended wait lists of up to a year for some procedures.  BUH Foundation has committed to raise $380,000 to replace the out of date equipment and provide new, technologically advanced medical equipment that has allowed for a new ENT specialist and will provide the best care for our loved ones.

…How You can be Involved

BUH Foundation Board of Directors and staff invite all individuals, businesses and organizations to be a part of “Every Little Bit Counts” campaign and support ENT services within The Battlefords.
