Island Health named one of BC’s top employers

For the fifth year in a row, the Vancouver Island Health Authority has been selected as one of the province's top employers by Mediacorp Canada.

BC’s Top Employers competition identifies organizations that lead their industries by providing exceptional workplaces for their employees.

"We appreciate being recognized as one of the best places to work in British Columbia," said Island Health board chair Don Hubbard. "This recognition means that we can attract and retain highly-trained and committed people looking for a rewarding career in health care.”

Island Health provides health care to more than 765,000 people on Vancouver Island, the islands of the Georgia Strait, and in mainland communities north of Powell River and south of Rivers Inlet. The natural beauty, exceptional climate, and diverse mix of urban and rural communities within Island Health draw health professionals from a variety of disciplines and from all over the world.

“We’re committed to creating a work environment that focuses on quality and fosters a culture of innovation and collaboration,” said Dr. Brendan Carr, Island Health’s president and CEO. “Our dedicated, professional workforce provides excellent care to Vancouver Island residents, and we are proud of the valuable work they perform each and every day."
