Comox offers all the amenities of a larger city with the charm of a small town setting, including high quality daycares, excellent schools (both French and English), relatively affordable housing, and easy access by air to Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton.

Comox Valley Hospital is a 154 bed acute care facility opened in 2017, managed by the Vancouver Island Health Authority.  This new facility includes a closed 8-bed ICU and a 10-bed telemetry unit.  In order to support our growing community, the Comox Valley Hospital is looking to expand internal medicine capacity.
