Pasqua Hospital - About

Since 1907, the Pasqua Hospital has served the health care needs of southern Saskatchewan. Formerly called the Grey Nuns Hospital, the Pasqua Hospital continues its tradition of care and community service as an integral part of the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region.

The Pasqua Hospital is recognized for provision of quality health care in several specialized areas. Highly qualified physicians and staff, along with advanced diagnostic equipment, have enabled the Pasqua Hospital to stay in the forefront of many programs, such as opthalmology, orthopedics and cancer services.

During 1997-98 many other programs and service areas at the Pasqua Hospital were enhanced. The arrival of the new Spiral CT Scanner and advanced nuclear medicine equipment were landmark occasions that greatly improved the diagnostic capabilities available for District clients. Renovations to areas such as palliative care, as well as the creation of a new ambulatory care area, are helping the Pasqua Hospital continue to provide a high standard of care and service to clients.
