Partnering With You For Excellence In Health Care
Did you know that there isn't a BC hospital that is fully government funded? Modest government funding is nowhere near enough to ensure the high quality of health care we've come to expect. Hospitals are expensive to operate, but crucial to our medical needs. Donations fund approximately half the cost of Burnaby Hospital's new or upgraded medical equipment and technology. In fact, over the past 15 years, donors have given close to $21 million for new equipment at the hospital. That figure doesn't include dollars raised for clinical education, for hospital programs or for the community wellness initiatives that also rely on donations to exist.
That's where Burnaby Hospital Foundation steps in.
As the fundraising organization for the hospital, we bridge the gap between what government provides and what our community needs. But, our role goes beyond raising awareness and funds.
Our broader purpose is to ensure Burnaby Hospital serves the the health needs of all generations because we know that vibrant communities are healthy communities. We are surrounded by everyday heroes who inspire us and drive our passion for what we do. They're the people we meet in the hospital hallways. Sometimes they're medical staff; sometimes they're brave-faced patients undergoing treatment. Often they're people who step into our office with a desire to give back and tell us their stories. We see compassion every day and we find inspiration with every story we hear.
