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.

Island Health is warning the public of intermittent schemes targeting overseas health care professionals. The misleading communications offer non-existent jobs within Island Health and state that in order to qualify, potential employees must pay fees for a medical exam and a two-day contract orientation session or that they are offering to provide visas for applicants at Island Health. Please be advised that Island Health only offers positions to candidates who have applied to and have been interviewed by hiring managers for job postings on our Careers website. If you have NOT applied to, and interviewed for a position with Island Health, but receive a job offer please consider the offer as fraudulent.
