Welcome to Island Health

On August 1 st, we launched our new public website:

wwww.islandhealth.ca

and a new website for medical staff:

medicalstaff.islandhealth.ca

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.

Becoming a Patient

New Patients

If you are 55 years of age and over and do not have a family doctor, or if your doctor is retiring, we might be the primary health care centre for you. 

Please note that we are not able to accommodate patients who currently have a family doctor. 

It is also important to note that the geographic boundaries for Health Point Care Centre are within the Greater Victoria area. This means that new patients to our practice must live within Greater Victoria.

You Should Know

Our medical office assistants will need to know your health care concern in order to book your appointment with the most appropriate health care provider. 

At Health Point Care Centre, we work as a team in providing your care and you may see a doctor, nurse practitioner, or registered nurse on your visit.  

As a patient at Health Point Care Centre, you are willing to:

  • participate in assessment by Health Point Care Centre team members to determine your care needs;
  • participate in and follow the plan of care to support your health as developed by you and the care team; and
  • be courteous and respectful of other patients, visitors and members of your Health Point Care Centre team.

If you do not have a family doctor and are interested in a primary health care team supporting your health care needs, please contact us.
