Value and Recognition

No matter what their job is, people like to know that their work is appreciated. Recognition is a vital part of feeling valued and connected, which is especially important and challenging in an organization as large and diverse as Island Health.

Our recognition initiatives include:

  • Long Service & Retirement - Recognizing staff and volunteers for their years of dedicated service and commitment to health care. 
  • Celebration of Excellence -  Island Health staff, leaders, physicians, volunteers and auxiliary members can nominate individuals and/or teams who excel in the provision of healthcare services.
    The nomination deadline is September 30th, 2017
  • Scholarships* - There are many scholarships available to Island Health staff. The next application deadline is June 1st, 2018

  • Employee Preferred Purchasing - Discounts and value-added offers on goods and services with businesses operating on and serving Vancouver Island.
