Building for Health

By building for health, we are working toward our vision of providing the best care and service to the people served by Island Health, no matter where they live or how they access our services.

We recognize that as demands on our health care system increase, we need to implement an innovative system-wide response that not only increases capacity, but improves the way we deliver care.

On this page you will find links to information about construction projects that will ensure we continue to meet the needs of the communities we serve, as close to home as possible. We are striving to build centres of excellence that focus on:

  • patient care and safety
  • quality of life of Island Health residents
  • innovative and efficient use of technology
  • partnerships and investment
  • environmentally responsible design
