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.


Patient Flow and Care Transitions Strategy 2013-2018

March 25, 2014

Island Health’s Patient Flow and Care Transitions 2013-2018 Strategy builds on the existing work within the organization to address access and flow for all patients across the continuum of health care needs and services, and sets out a framework that will underpin further development over the coming years. Improving access to services and optimizing transitions in care for our patients requires strategies and improvements across the full continuum of the health system, and this is the foundation of the Strategy.  Patient Flow and Care Transitions Strategy 2013-2018 (pdf)
