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.


Long Service & Retirement

Island Health's Long Service & Retirement Recognition program has been designed to recognize, honour and celebrate our long serving and recently retired employees, volunteers and auxiliary members for their contributions, commitment, service and dedication to providing excellent care for everyone, everywhere and every time.

Long Service & Retirement Program

If you are an Island Health employee, volunteer or auxiliary member reaching your 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 or 50 years of service milestone, or you have recently retired with 15 or more years of service, we would like to take the opportunity to express our sincere appreciation and celebrate your achievement!
