Biographical history

The Burns Lake Hospital was established by the Presbyterian Church in 1919, as a hospital at Francois, B.C., moved to Burns Lake five years later. It was operated by the Woman's Missionary Society until 1962, at which time the Board of Home Missions assumed responsibility for its operation. Responsibility was transferred to the community in the early 1970s. The Hospital Society was created in 1930 to work towards the construction of a new hospital, which took place in 1932. Thereafter, the Society concerned itself with equipment, furnishing and maintenance of the new hospital; it was dissolved in 1944.
