Burnaby Hospital Foundation is following the lead of Canadian public health authorities and is doing its part to protect our community. We want to assure you that our top priority continues to be the health, safety, and well-being of our employees, supporters, hospital family, patients, and the general public.
In response to the ever-evolving situation involving COVID-19, we have established the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund and are accepting contributions to help with the emergency needs of the hospital in dealing with the pandemic.
There is a growing list of urgently needed items to support frontline staff. If anyone would like to help, we are currently accepting donations towards ICU beds, Cardiac monitors, C-MACs, and other needs as they are requested by our health care professionals.
Any leftover funds remaining once the crisis has passed will continue to be invested in emergency care and equipment to ensure Burnaby Hospital is even better prepared the next time something like the COVID-19 pandemic occurs.
If you would like to donate Personal Protective Equipment to support our health care workers please submit your donations through the following website: safecarebc.ca/operationprotect
There is a list of applicable PPE on the site, under “What supplies are needed.”
