Lakeland Ford Purchases Unique-to-Saskatchewan Game Systems and TVs for Kids at Victoria Hospital

Jun 18, 2021 | Donation

Today, Lakeland Ford unveiled two video gaming carts for the pediatric ward at the Victoria Hospital. These carts are the only ones of their kind in our province, and will allow children in hospital to play a wide variety of video games in their rooms. The two carts, one Nintendo Switch, and one Xbox One, are designed specifically for hospitals and are totally self contained and arrived fully loaded with today’s most popular games for all ages. They can be easily sanitized and have no discs or game cartridges to misplace. Lakeland Ford has also funded a new wall mounted TV for every patient room on the pediatric floor.

The Victoria Hospital Foundation would like to express our gratitude on behalf of Northern Saskatchewan for Lakeland Ford’s commitment to improving the experience of children that have to stay in our hospital.

“Our busy hospital has an even busier pediatric ward that cares for sick children ranging in age from infants to 17 years old. Most often, sick or infectious children must remain in isolation in their rooms while they recover. We are so grateful to Lakeland Ford for this incredible donation of brand new televisions and two amazing mobile gaming carts that will provide the children in our pediatrics ward with a much needed and fun distraction to lift their spirits as they get better.”
– Sherry Buckler, CEO, Victoria Hospital Foundation.

“This gift is a demonstration of our commitment to healthcare –particularly for kids – in Prince Albert and Northern Saskatchewan. Providing this unique donation to the Victoria Hospital is our way to help children and families at a time when they need it most – making a hospital stay just a little bit better. We’re extremely pleased to offer this support to our community and especially to our kids.” – Scott Newsom, Managing Partner, Lakeland Ford
