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.


Hospice Palliative and End-of-Life Care

Hospice palliative care offers a client- and family-centred approach and support for people making choices about end-of-life care. The goal is to help clients and families make the most of their time together, and to cope with grief and loss during illness and bereavement.

For more information, please visit the Island Health Hospice Palliative and End-of-Life Care website.
