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.


Equipment Loan


Equipment is available for loan to families served by the Child Youth and Family Rehabilitation Services (CYFH-RS) staff in the VIHA South Island area.


    • Equipment can be signed out for a loan period of three months by CYFH-RS staff.  This can be extended for up to one school year if required, as negotiated with the Equipment Loan Coordinator and Senior Physiotherapist if needed. If equipment is needed for longer than three months, the family should explore purchasing or funding options.
    • Therapy toys from the loan library can be loaned for a period of one month, as these items tend to be in high demand.
