MEDICAL MINDS: Dr. Carlo Stuglin & Dr. Kelly Coverett        

Many hearts are beating easier thanks to the skilled hands of Dr. Carlo Stuglin and Dr. Kelly Coverett, two cardiologists at Royal University Hospital trained in the sub specialty of Cardiac Electrophysiology. This amazing procedure allows physicians to cure abnormal heart rhythms that can cause fatal cardiac arrest.

However, due to space and equipment constraints at RUH, Dr. Stuglin (left) and Dr. Coverett (right) were able to see patients for Cardiac EP procedures just one day per week. Their waiting list was long. In fact, Saskatchewan was one of only two provinces that did not offer this standard of care to its citizens on a full-time basis. Many of their patients had to leave the province for this standard of care.   

Just ask Dan Lewans of Swift Current, whose heart rhythm disorder was cured by the Cardiac EP team at RUH. "It saved my life," says a very grateful patient.

Every Heart Matters 

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the RUH Foundation was able to provide funding to Dr. Stuglin and Dr. Coverett so they could take advanced training at Calgary Foothills Hospital and bring their skills back to the people of Saskatchewan. The Every Heart Matters Campaign raised $5.5 million for the construction and equipping of a dedicated Cardiac EP Lab at RUH so that our skilled physicians and their medical team can save more lives and give more of our citizens a better quality of life.  

The Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation made a generous donation of $1.5 million to help us realize this goal.
