Community Engagement

The delivery of health care services is complex and relies on the collaboration of many. To integrate services and improve population health, we work in partnership and share responsibility with our:

  • colleagues
  • clients
  • communities
  • municipal and government organizations

Island Health is committed to working closely with the communities it serves.
