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.



Monthly residential care rates are based on 80% of your after-tax income;  minimum and maximum rates apply. The monthly rate contributes to the cost of providing the service.

The Ministry of Health allows facilities to apply additional charges for optional services. This includes, but is not limited to, hairdressing, cable, and telephone services.

Services and charges may vary between settings. Facility staff will inform you about these fees before you move in and must have your written consent.

For more information, please visit the Ministry of Health: Long-Term Residential Care page.
