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.


St. Joseph's General Hospital

On Sunday, October 1, 2017 all acute health-care services, including the emergency department, moved to the new North Island Hospital, Comox Valley campus.

Patients in need of care should proceed to the Emergency Department at the new North Island Hospital, Comox Valley campus.

St. Joseph's General Hospital (SJGH) will continue to operate The Views residential care. The outpatient lab will also remain in operation at the SJGH site.
