With a over 2,200 dedicated physicians, medical staff, staff and volunteers, our community hospital is a dynamic hub of  innovation and advancement, with the goal of improving patient care.

Within this culture of growth, Burnaby Hospital Foundation takes pride in offering education grants that give our staff unique opportunities to advance their knowledge and pursue their dreams in the healthcare field.

Meet Amy, a 24 year-old booking clerk in Burnaby Hospital’s Medical Imaging Department. A student at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, Amy is studying to become a Registered Nurse and recently received a grant from the Foundation to help her further her education. Amy is an example of the Foundation and the hospital’s commitment to nurturing talent from within.

 “My time at Burnaby Hospital has been immensely rewarding and educational,” Amy shares, reflecting on her experience. “Working alongside dedicated clerks, medical imaging technologists, radiologists, and other healthcare professionals has profoundly shaped my aspirations in the medical field.”

As a full-time student juggling her studies and responsibilities, Amy emphasizes the positive impact the grant has made in her life. “This grant has provided me with access to additional resources, including educational materials and living support, significantly enhancing my nursing education journey.”

Amy envisions becoming a compassionate and proficient healthcare professional, delivering high-quality patient care to her community and beyond. Outside of her work and studies, Amy also tutors Chemistry 11 students.

As we proceed with the massive redevelopment of the hospital campus, Burnaby Hospital Foundation remains dedicated to empowering the next generation of medical leaders to grow and thrive as they shape the future of healthcare in our community.
