At Royal University Hospital, our Registration staff work with you to arrange your accommodation. We offer standard ward accommodation to all patients at no charge. These rooms generally contain four beds, and may or may not contain a bathroom.
To enhance your hospital experience, we offer a Preferred Accommodations program. Preferred Accommodations rooms include private and semi-private rooms and Victorian Suites on the Maternity ward. These rooms may be available upon request.
These rooms offer additional privacy and convenience and include premium plus cable TV and telephone services in the cost of the room. Saskatoon Health Region will direct bill your insurer for preferred accommodation charges.
While we will make every effort to place you in a preferred accommodation, your requested accommodation may not be available to you at the time you request it.
During your stay in a preferred accommodation you may be relocated to another room to accommodate a patient with unique medical needs.
