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 three hospitals 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; and
- St. Paul’s Hospital is located on Saskatoon’s west side.
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, which you can find by searching the Saskatoon Yellow pages. 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 doctors currently accepting new patients.
