Administrative history

The history of the Pasqua Hospital began in 1907 when the Sisters of Charity (Grey Nuns) of St. Boniface, Manitoba founded the Regina Grey Nuns' Hospital. By the late 1960's, the hospital was in need of extensive renovations; a task the Sisters hesitated to undertake. Various people and agencies were consulted regarding ways in which the Sisters could withdraw from the ownership and management of the hospital. It was decided that the hospital would become part of the South Saskatchewan Hospital Centre, and the Provincial Government officially purchased the hospital on 31 August 1972. The South Saskatchewan Hospital Centre Board of Governors assumed responsibility for operation of the hospital, and the name was changed to Pasqua Hospital on 1 September 1973. The creation of the Regina District Health Board (14 February 1992) and the Regina Health District (May 1993) resulted in the amalgamation of all Regina hospitals under the management of one administration and one Board. On 1 August 2002, the Regina Health District joined with the Touchwood Qu'Appelle and Pipestone health districts to form the Regina Qu'Appelle Regional Health Authority (est. 26 November 2002). The Pasqua Hospital is one of two provincial hoispitals in the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region. The following individuals have served as Administrator: Robert B. Sylvestre, MD (Acting, 1972-1974), Murray T. Martin (1976-1986), Bob Allen (Acting, 1986-ca. 1987), and Bernie J. McCallion (ca. 1987-ca. 1993).

Administrative history

The Regina Grey Nuns' Hospital was founded in 1907 by the Sisters of Charity (Grey Nuns) of St. Boniface, Manitoba. Reverend Sister Mary Duffin, foundress of the new mission in Regina, purchased the Park Sanatorium at 1400 Angus Street, previously owned and operated by Doctors D.S. Johnstone and J.A. Cullum. The School of Nursing was also opened during the inaugural year, with four students graduating in 1909. From 1910 to 1912, the Sisters constructed a new 50-bed hospital on two Dewdney Road lots provided by the City of Regina. The first Nurses' Home was built in 1915. Over the years many additions were made to the buildings, which grew to house the Saskatchewan Cancer Clinic and the Provincial Laboratories. In 1959 the first Medical Director was hired. By the Diamond Anniversary of the Hospital in 1967, bed capacity was at 520 and employees numbered 1076 (including student nurses).By the late 1960's, with the building in need of extensive renovations, the Sisters sought to withdraw from the ownership and management of the hospital. Mr. E. F. Bourassa, first lay Administrator of the Regina Grey Nuns' Hospital, proposed that it should become part of the South Saskatchewan Hospital Centre. The Sisters officially transferred ownership to the Saskatchewan Government on 31 August 1972, and the SSHC Board of Governors assumed control. The Regina Grey Nuns' Hospital was officially renamed Pasqua Hospital on 1 September 1973.

The following have served as Administrator: Eugene F. Bourassa (1967- 1970), Sister F. Dussault (Acting Administrator, 1971-1972).
