Building a community of care for a community that cares

The plan for a new hospital, with capacity for 204 beds, is strengthened by an innovative approach to delivering integrated health services across the Cowichan Region. 

From hospital care to primary and community health solutions designed to meet the current and future health needs of people in the region, Island Health is committed to building a community of care for a community that cares.
