Burnaby Hospital to get ventilation upgrades

The ventilation and air-handling systems at Burnaby Hospital is being upgraded at a cost of $193,000, a routine capital investment by the province.

The project aims to improve air flow for patient safety and comfort, said a health ministry press release, which noted the upgrades will increase infection-control measures.

The work is scheduled for completion by February 2013.
