The Anluan Foundation has donated $100,000 to the Saskatchewan Hospital New Beginnings Fundraising Campaign, bringing the total raised to $6.3 million. In recognition, Anluan Foundation and the Hanlon Family will have the Multipurpose Conference Room named in their honour.
The New Beginnings campaign is raising $8 million for needed medical equipment and furnishings for the new Saskatchewan Hospital under construction in North Battleford.
"We are so pleased to be a part of this project,” said Ted Hanlon, on behalf of his family's Anluan Foundation. “Giving back to our communities is very important to our family and the new hospital will help so many people from all across our province. We feel it is critical to support mental health in Saskatchewan and knew we wanted to do it through a donation to the new hospital.”

The Hanlon Conference Centre will increase the new hospital's capacity to hold large meetings and presentations. It will be used for hospital teaching and staff orientations, in addition to educational opportunities for patients, health employees, students and the general public. Providing a highly visible, modern and customizable space, the conference centre will be equipped with state-of-the-art audio, video and presentation technology.
A rich history in Saskatchewan has fostered the importance of family and community for Ted Hanlon and his family. The Hanlons homesteaded in southwest Saskatchewan and have been strong supporters of health and education across the province. They support Saskatchewan Hospital and the new seniors home in Swift Current as well as the University of Saskatchewan's business school.
Hanlon explains the gifts to education and health care as family driven. “I have a daughter and granddaughter who are nurses and we have three generations – myself, my son and my grandson – who are graduates of Edwards School of Business at the U of S,” he explained.
“To have the Hanlons join in the Saskatchewan Hospital campaign means the world to us,” said Corinne Bernier Delainey, New Beginnings Fundraising Lead. “Their donation, together with all the others, will help us create a home-like and healing environment for our patients.”
