At Royal University Hospital, our registration staff work with you to arrange your accommodations.
We offer standard rooms 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 private and semi-private rooms and Victorian Suites on the Maternal and Newborn Care Unit (maternity). These rooms may be available upon request and offer additional privacy and convenience. They also include premium plus cable TV and telephone services in the cost of the room.
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.
If you are requesting a private or semi-private room or a Victorian Suite please make sure that you have signed the Agreement to Pay for Preferred Accommodations Form (PDF). These are also provided by registration clerks.
Methods of Payment
- Extra Health Insurance - If you have a private health insurance plan or an extended health benefits plan through work, Saskatoon Health Region will bill your insurance provider directly for your preferred accommodation charges. You will be responsible for the cost of your preferred accommodation, so be sure to check with your insurance provider or your employer to determine if preferred accommodations are covered under your plan. Not all insurance providers accept direct billing from Saskatoon Health Region at this time. If you are choosing to pay for your preferred accommodation with extra health insurance you must complete the Insurance Information Form (PDF). These are also provided by the registration staff. This form must be completed and given to a cashier before you are discharged from the hospital
- Credit Card, Cash, Debit or Personal Cheque - If you are not paying through an extra health insurance plan, you can pay for your preferred accommodations by Visa, MasterCard, cash, debit or personal cheque. If you are paying with a credit card you must provide your complete credit card information to the Cashier to secure your preferred accommodation. Charges will be processed on your credit card upon discharge. If you are paying by cash debit or cheque, you must pay a deposit of $200. Any unused deposit will be returned to you upon discharge from the hospital and any remaining charges are due upon discharge.
