A Different Today For A Better Tomorrow

For me, relationships are core to the delivery of high-quality health and care. Building strong connections with patients and families, partners and communities—and between each of us as members of the Island Health team—is essential to transforming Island into a locally and regionally collaborative, connected, caring and solution-oriented organization.

Over the next few months, members of the Executive Team and the Board of Directors will be travelling throughout Island Health to meet with program staff as well as our key partners in the delivery of care.

These ongoing conversations—both formal and informal, are foundational for Island Health if we are to address the challenges we face in caring for our patients and clients, and building healthy communities. 

We look forward to talking with staff, medical staff and volunteers– listening to and learning from you. These conversations will shape our plans for the future and will also identify “the stones in your shoes” that constrain us.

Every day you demonstrate your creativity and your ability to innovate. We are looking forward to hearing your ideas as together, we create a different day for a better tomorrow.

To learn more about how you can participate, please visit our Island Connect webpage on the intranet. Medical staff may submit anonymous, confidential feedback through this form or send an email to
