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.


Quality Care

Island Health is dedicated to providing you with the highest standard of care and safety every day. This commitment to quality care is the cornerstone of all the work we do.

Quality care means continuously evaluating and improving our services and systems through self-assessment, open communication and community partnerships. Our goal is to deliver a standard of world-class quality, creating healthier, stronger communities and a better quality of life for those we touch.
