Burnaby residents had long been asking for a hospital in their municipality so on July 14, 1943, the first meeting of the Burnaby Hospital Fund-raising Committee was held at the Canadian Legion Hall at Royal Oak and Kingsway. In 1947, the group was incorporated as the Burnaby Hospital Society and after extensive lobbying and fundraising, the Burnaby General Hospital opened its doors on October 30, 1952. The site was provided by the Municipality of Burnaby on 17.5 acres of parkland on a small hill in the Cascade Heights area. In its first year, the hospital admitted 5010 patients and delivered 944 babies.

Heritage Value
The Capitol Hill Community Hall was designed by local architect Harold Cullerne (1890-1976). After Cullerne returned from service during the First World War, he joined J.H. Bowman in a partnership that lasted from 1919 to 1934. After Bowman retired in 1934, Cullerne practiced on his own, continuing to work on schools and institutional buildings, such as the Art Deco Hollywood Theatre in Vancouver. In 1944, Cullerne designed a community hall for Capitol Hill; the scheme was delayed, and redesigned before it was finally built after the end of the Second World War. A simple front gabled roof hall structure, this hall is a monument to community spirit, erected by community members on a volunteer basis, and used for community events for over half a century. The hall replaced two earlier structures, both destroyed by fire, that had served the same purpose.
