Another Major Donation for New Children's Hospital

After a successful 50-year-long career in Saskatchewan's oil and gas industry, Ron and Shirley Carson & family have made a $1 million gift to Jim Pattison Children's Hospital Foundation as a way of saying thank you to the families of our province. Ron Carson found large-scale success with his company, Carson Energy Services Ltd. after its humble beginnings in 1974 as a small welding business. After venturing into the industry

with only eight employees, it has grown to be one of Saskatchewan's largest private

companies with over 900 employees and 17 locations across Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and

Eastern Alberta.

The generous gift will support a Family Space & Kitchen located just outside of the Pediatric

Intensive Care and Observation Unit (PICU) in the new Jim Pattison Children's Hospital. The

unit specializes in the care of critically ill babies, children and teenagers and will be the only one of its kind in the province of Saskatchewan. The Family Space & Kitchen will give families visiting the PICU a quiet, comfortable and stress-free environment away from their child's hospital room, which is essential to their emotional well-being and key to Jim Pattison Children's Hospital Foundation's commitment to family-centred care.
