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.


Our new vision of...'Healthy people *Healthy community * Healthcare for all' and mission to 'inspire our community by enriching the healthcare experience through education, innovation and engagement' is our guiding star that will lead us through the movement of ever-changing moments in our times.


Healthy people. Healthy community. Quality healthcare for all.

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.
