A uranium mining company made a donation today to push Saskatoon’s Royal University Hospital Royal Care Campaign over the top of its stated goal.


AREVA donated $400,000, and an extra $45,000 was added to that total from its Cluff Lake Recreation Club.


In a signing ceremony held today at the hospital, officials representing AREVA and the hospital celebrated the achievement of exceeding the campaign’s target of $15 million in donations.


RUH’s Royal Care Campaign helps enhance patient care, support medical research and provides additional training for staff at the hospital.


With the funding received through donations, the Royal Care Campaign has so far purchased over $250,000 in new equipment like genetic testing machines and diagnostic monitors.


As well, the 10-bed Siemens Emergency Room Consultation Area was created to enhance patient care in the emergency wing of the hospital.
