Each year, hundreds of babies are admitted to Saskatoon’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), for treatment, monitoring and lifesaving measures. As parents, relatives, and friends of babies who have required NICU care, BloomNICU is an organization run solely by volunteers looking to make a positive impact on the future care of patients and families in the NICU.
From the purchase of portable ultrasound equipment and a ventilator used in critical patient transport to the first-ever NICView bedside cameras in Canada (allowing parents and families real-time video connections with their babies in the Saskatoon NICU), all proceeds raised by BloomNICU are donated with the intent to support staff, enhance care and promote a positive patient/family experience in neonatal care.
As we transition in obtaining BloomNICU’s own registration, the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation has endorsed BloomNICU by providing tax receipts for eligible donations.
Our success is warranted to the tremendous support BloomNICU receives from local community through corporate sponsorship and from the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. A variety of sponsorship packages are available.
