$500k Investment by Create Properties Supports Accessible Maternity Care at Burnaby Hospital

August 19, 2022

At a reception attended by Burnaby Mayor Mike Hurley, Burnaby City Council members, hospital supporters, medical staff, and other dignitaries, Burnaby Hospital Foundation celebrated the
naming of the new Create Properties Maternity Clinic. Create Properties’ contribution of a generous $500,000 gift is an investment in the new maternity clinic and a part of the Foundation’s Bright Future redevelopment campaign.

Lin Li, founder and president of Create Properties, sees parallels between new life born in the maternity department at Burnaby Hospital and the new life Create aspires to breathe into the communities they build. “The maternity facilities at Burnaby Hospital are where new life arrives, bringing with it hope, optimism, and excitement,” remarks Li. “It is a gathering place for families and loved ones, who will shortly embark on a new journey together, one that will be filled with joy, tears, laughter, and a sense of undeniable connection.”

“Thanks for the generous contribution from Create, it’s very meaningful for the donation to support the redevelopment’s plans for a new maternity clinic,” shares James Wang, Burnaby City Councilor and the founding member of Burnaby Hospital Foundation’s Chinese Ambassador Society. “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all donors in the community for their contributions to Burnaby Hospital Foundation in past years.” Burnaby Hospital Foundation extends thanks for incredible support from its Chinese Ambassador Society, who have connected the Foundation with generous donors and have named the Foundation as a beneficiary from several community events.

The Burnaby Hospital Maternity Clinic serves women in the community who do not have a physician providing obstetrical care, and those who wish to deliver at Burnaby Hospital. The Clinic’s physicians have extensive obstetrical experience, and work closely together to ensure that patients have 24‐hour accessibility to care. To allow for the best care possible, the Clinic works with a team of multi‐disciplinary heath care providers, including specialist obstetricians, dietician services, social workers and interpreters.

“Approximately 1,500 babies are delivered at Burnaby Hospital each year and we expect that number to continue to increase as our population grows. We are honoured and inspired by Create Properties’ generous gift towards maternity services at Burnaby Hospital,” shares Kristy James, Burnaby Hospital Foundation President and CEO. “This gift will have a significant impact on so many families and we commend Create’s dedication to investing in the Burnaby community.”
