In order to receive health care at no direct cost to you, you must have a Saskatchewan Health Card. Learn more about who is eligible for a card and how to apply.
Hospitals and Clinics
Saskatoon has four hospitals, including a children's hospital, and a number of medical clinics:
Royal University Hospital is located on the University of Saskatchewan campus;
City Hospital is located just north of the downtown area;
St. Paul’s Hospital is located on Saskatoon’s west side; and
Jim Pattison Children's Hospital is located on the University of Saskatchewan campus.
If you need medical care right away (broken bone, chest pains, difficulty breathing, etc.), all of the hospitals have emergency wards; please check each hospital’s website to learn what hours the emergency wards are open. If you need medical care, but it is not an emergency, there are a number of walk-in clinics in Saskatoon you can visit. You do not need to have a family doctor to use a walk-in clinic.
While you are not required to have a regular family doctor, it is of great benefit to be able to consistently visit a doctor who is familiar with your and your family’s health. Check out this list of Saskatoon clinics currently accepting new patients.
