About Burnaby Hospital Foundation

Burnaby Hospital is your local hospital – close to home and close to your heart. As the fundraising organization for Burnaby Hospital, Burnaby Hospital Foundation bridges the gap between what the government provides and what our community needs. Our purpose is to ensure that Burnaby Hospital is equipped in every way to advance the health of all generations that will help maintain the vibrancy of the entire community.

Our family of nurses, doctors and health care professionals take great pride in their spirit of innovation and dedicated service to patients. But they are severely challenged in their ability to provide 21st century care in a hospital that was built in 1952 and has not been expanded since 1978. In under 3 years, our community has helped the Foundation raise $30 million for Phase One of the focusing on four critically important services for all local families: emergency, surgery, maternity and mental health.

But our work to build a Bright Future for Burnaby Hospital is not done.

Burnaby Hospital Foundation still needs your help to transform a beloved community hospital into a state-of-the-art facility that will meet the growing health care needs of Burnaby and East Vancouver for generations to come.

This milestone is only the first step in a larger campaign. The multi-phase redevelopment will significantly expand the services available for patients and families and boost the number of beds by almost 50%. When the redevelopment is complete, the hospital campus will have expanded medical services, two new patient care towers and a cancer treatment centre.
