A specialized service coming to Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital is receiving a financial boost thanks to a Prince Albert-based company with a heart for kids. B&B Construction has generously gifted $250,000 to support the Pediatric Occupational Therapy Treatment and Splinting Room on the main floor of Saskatchewan’s first dedicated maternal and children’s hospital.
“The B&B Construction Group is excited and proud to be able to make this commitment and donation to Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation. On behalf of our employees and the Broda, Clunie and Burkosky families we thank all who have made this very needed facility and health service possible,” said B&B Construction Group partner Russell Clunie Jr. “We feel the hospital is a long needed and fantastic addition to our province, which will serve and support many children and families though out Saskatchewan as well as our own community here in Prince Albert.”
The treatment and splinting room will be a place where a child’s ability to perform tasks typical for their age will be assessed. In many cases, children who have experienced an injury or weakness may require splints or other specialized equipment to help their bodies achieve a desired position, provide protection and/or support and assist with their function and recovery.
