At Island Health we are dedicated to keeping our medical staff connected and up to date about what's happening across our diverse health authority. The Physicians website is a centralized information resource intended to provide timely, consistent and clear communication for Island Health's medical staff.


Medical Staff, We want to hear from you!

Island Health has launched an Engagement and Safety Culture survey of medical staff (physicians, dentists & midwives) for the first time in an effort to better understand what it is like for medical staff to practice in our organization.  This is part of the Island Health Engagement and Safety Culture Survey that was distributed to Island Health staff in June 2017.

All medical staff with privileges as of June 30th, 2017 will have received an email from MedStaffEngagement@viha.ca sent on behalf of an external vendor, Insightrix Research, on September 12, 2017.  All responses are anonymous.  In November, aggregated summary reports will be provided to Island Health to be shared with our medical leaders and medical staff to collaboratively develop improvement plans.

For more information about the survey, review these FAQs.

If you have any additional questions, please email MedStaffEngagement@viha.ca
