BHF Proud History, Bright Future

I’m so excited to see the Burnaby Hospital Foundation – Proud History, Bright Future broadcast in support of the redevelopment of the Burnaby Hospital and presented by the Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society. An amazing effort put together by the Burnaby Hospital Foundation staff and team, raising $135,000 towards the redevelopment!

The time has come to transform this aging hospital to a world-class facility equipped to serve generations to come and outfitted with state of the art medical equipment to match the incredible talents of its’ medical staff.

We’re [a] world class team in a bit of an ancient hospital. One of our big innovations is developing daycare surgery for total joint replacements. People were staying 4 days before and now they’re going home the same day…We are a leader in total joint innovation. ~ Dr. Tim Kostamo

The Burnaby Hospital Redevelopment is committed to:

  • Modernise our health care network
  • Build capacity
  • Improve timely access to patient-centred care

Burnaby like the rest of the Lower Mainland is going through major growth. We know there’s going to be a million more people living in the region within the next 20 years or so. It’s important that we meet those needs. ~ Mayor Mike Hurley

I think that any hospital in any community is a pillar of that community. It’s where you go when you’re sick, it’s where you go to have joy when somebody has a baby. It’s a part of everybody’s lives, we don’t always want to go there but it’s nice to know that when you do need the hospital that you have a great hospital with great people, and that’s what Burnaby General is. ~ Doug Petti
