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

If you want to be part of the big effort being made by so many in the community so the residents get the hospital they deserve, please donate at bhfoundation.ca/donate. Get your 50/50 raffle tickets at bhfoundation.rafflenexus.com.

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

We Did It! #SuttonWildfireRelief

Sutton REALTORS® across Canada came together to show our commitment to community and donated a total of $52,428 for the #SuttonWildfireRelief and the Canadian Red Cross.

We personally want to thank all the Sutton REALTORS® who joined in on the #SuttonWildfireRelief campaign in support of our Fort McMurray colleagues and neighbours. Fort McMurray residents are now gearing up for phase 1 of the re-entry plan, scheduled to start on June 1st.

Your donations have helped provide accommodations, food, water and supplies to the Fort McMurray evacuees. More than 80,000 Albertans were forced to leave their homes in the largest fire-related evacuation in the province’s history.

But the work doesn’t stop here… Beyond meeting the immediate needs of evacuees, your donation will help those affected by this disaster not only today, but also in the weeks, months and even years ahead as they work to rebuild their lives.

Just a bit of background, some of you may know I’ve been working with 100 Success, a group of individuals who want to lend their support to the Downtown Eastside community by providing mentorship and encouragement for individuals who have completed recovery (Climbers) to connect their business ideas and social projects to advisers (Sherpas) and to potential clients.

Come join us this coming Wednesday for a glimpse into what we’ve been doing!
