375 – 2nd Avenue, Campbell River, BC V9W 3V1
The first hospital in Campbell River was built in 1914 with 22 beds. It was operated by a local board of trustees with funding collected from local logging companies. Over the years, Campbell River grew from a small logging, commercial and sport fishing area to a vibrant, diverse collection of people and industries. As the population increased, health services in the community also expanded to include Home Health Care, Mental Health and Substance Use services, Public Health nursing, health protection services, residential care and more.
Today Campbell River Hospital serves more than 54,000 and North Vancouver Island area is experiencing both growth and aging population. The Hospital is the first point of referral for illness including heart attacks, strokes, respiratory problems and all other diseases. It must ensure that it is in a position to properly respond to our community’s health care needs by providing the diagnostic treatment and support and programs required.
When you give you support the doctors, nurses and other key members of your local healthcare team, and help ensure that you and your loved ones continue to receive first-class healthcare right here at home.
