About Us

Paving the way for a better future in healthcare.

Our Story

Burnaby Hospital opened its doors on October 30, 1952 hosting 125 patient beds and proudly holding the title of the largest suburban general hospital in Canada at the time.

In 1982, the hospital took a pioneering step in the Lower Mainland by establishing Burnaby Hospital Foundation with an aim to strengthen fundraising endeavours. This pivotal move was designed to bridge the gap between governmental assistance and the evolving needs of our growing community.

For over four decades, our unwavering mission has been to ensure Burnaby Hospital remains equipped to promote the health and well-being of all generations, ready to serve you, your friends, and loved ones when you need it most.
