Island Health has an Intranet where employees can find resources and information, as well as share news in the Lunchroom. The links on this page are only accessible to employees and physicians of Island Health who have a valid Island Health login ID. If you do not work for Island Health and you do not have login access, you will not be able to access the Island Health Intranet.
