Welcome to Island Health

On August 1 st, we launched our new public website:


and a new website for medical staff:


Our website was developed in partnership with patients and residents of Vancouver Island and the surrounding regions. It's accessible, mobile friendly and flexible to help us evolve with our communities as we work towards excellent health and care for everyone, everywhere, every time.

Come visit the new sites and update your bookmarks. This www.viha.ca site will continue to be available for one month so that our staff and partners have time to update their links to the new site. You can still browse the old site but it will no longer be updated.


Community Engagement

The delivery of health care services is complex and relies on the collaboration of many.  To integrate services and improve population health, we work in partnership and share responsibility with our:

  • colleagues,
  • clients,
  • communities, and
  • municipal and government organizations.

Island Health is committed to working closely with the communities it serves.
