Our Board of Directors

Working with the executive team, the board establishes Island Health's Vision, Purpose and Values and ensures patients receive the best care possible within an affordable, sustainable health care system.

General Board Forums

The Board of Directors holds public forums in communities across the Island Health region. Although the pandemic has prevented in person meetings, we are planning to host virtual board public forums in 2021. We will update this page once the dates and times are confirmed. 

How do I communicate with the board?

The Board of Directors are interested in hearing what is important to you. If you have a question or comment for the board, we invite you to attend our Virtual Board Public Forum or submit a question to asktheboard@islandhealth.ca
