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.


Donate to Your Local Hospital or Healthcare Foundation

Welcome Island Health employees and thank you for supporting your local hospital or healthcare foundations! We invite you to learn more about our foundations and hope that you will consider making a donation.

Why give?

The Foundations are valuable community partners that provide unwavering support, contributing upwards of $15 million each year to Island Health. Their efforts help us all to deliver excellent care to more than 760,000 people living in the region.

Learn about the specific contributions of your local foundation by visiting their website (listed below).

How else can I support the Foundations?

Try volunteering! Every year volunteers offer their time, skills and resources to support the Hospital / Healthcare Foundations with fundraising events in their local regions. The benefits of volunteering are many and include the satisfaction of giving something back to the community, sharing your skills, talents and time, helping others, making new friends, gaining experience and helping to make a difference in people’s lives. Contact a Foundation directly for details about volunteering.
