Community Surpasses $27M Raised Towards Burnaby’s Bright Future

Community Surpasses $27M Raised Towards Burnaby’s Bright Future

August 3, 2022

Through unprecedented and uncertain times, our community has shown their strength and generosity, coming together to raise over $27 million towards Burnaby Hospital’s Bright Future redevelopment project. 

Inspired by a $5 million matching gift by philanthropist and business icon, Jim Pattison, our community has raised a remarkable $2.5 million in just a few short months! We want to extend a sincere thank you to every donor that took this opportunity to have Jim match their gift and double its impact. Because of you, we are one-step closer to our vision of a modern health care campus.

Fundraising for the multi-phase redevelopment project began in 2020, shortly before the beginning of the global COVID-19 pandemic. The way our Burnaby and East Vancouver communities have come together to support Burnaby Hospital Foundation has shown unity for the people around us. With a population that continues to grow and thrive, our hospital must grow as well. When complete, the redevelopment project will significantly expand the services available for patients and families and boost the number of beds by almost 50 percent. The new hospital campus will also include two new patient care towers and a cancer treatment centre.
