Your generous support makes everything we do meaningful and life changing. Putting state-of-the-art medical equipment and the best technology available into the hands of our dedicated health-care professionals ensures that patients at Burnaby Hospital receive the highest standard of care.
Government funding covers hospital-operating costs, but it does not provide enough to purchase the expensive medical equipment and technological upgrades necessary in today's health care setting.
Since 2002, donors have provided approximately $21 million toward medical equipment and technology. This represents nearly 50% — yes, half of the total dollars spent on medical equipment at Burnaby Hospital.
In 2016, donations helped purchase equipment such as:
- Fetal Monitor
- Specialized ICU beds
- Birthing Bed
- Electrosurgical Unit
- Transport Ventilator
- Ceiling Lift
- Orthopedic Surgery Tools
