Physicians for a Bright Future

Our doctors are leading the charge for the transformation of Burnaby Hospital.

The doctors of Burnaby Hospital are our champions and our heroes. Every day they dedicate their lives to ensuring the health and wellbeing of entire community. 

Now, under the banner Physicians for a Bright Future, doctors from across all medical departments have set a goal to contribute $1 million of the $30 million committed by Burnaby Hospital Foundation toward the $1.3 billion expansion and total transformation of the hospital campus

“We want to do our part, and we want to lead by example. As physicians, we are obviously stakeholders in the welfare of this facility and we care a great deal about the major positive impact redevelopment will have on patient outcomes, and on the health of our community as a whole. We are very pleased to take on this challenge.”
