Health minister to speak at Burnaby Hospital forum

Health Minister Mike de Jong will be among the speakers at a town hall meeting on the future of Burnaby Hospital being held Tuesday, July 3, 7 to 8:30 p.m.

The open forum will be held at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown, 6083 McKay Ave., and hosted by the Burnaby Hospital Community Consultation Committee.

The public is invited to attend and offer their input on the hospital's future.

Officials from Fraser Health Authority will also be in attendance.

In April, de Jong announced Fraser Health and the Burnaby Hospital Foundation were starting a master-planning process to develop a vision for the expansion, improvement and delivery of health services at the hospital.

The 12-member consultation committee, headed by BC Liberal MLAs Harry Bloy (Burnaby-Lougheed) and Richard Lee (Burnaby-North) was also formed to consult with the community on what they want to see in the hospital's future.

The committee has also produced "My Bby H" T-shirts to promote conversation around the subject. They are available for sale ($10 youth and $15 adults) at Milani Plumbing and at the Beedie Group offices in Burnaby and through www.facebook/mybbyhospital, with proceeds going to the Burnaby Hospital Foundation.
