Organizational Structures

Working with the Board of Directors, and led by President and Chief Executive Officer Kathy MacNeil, the Executive Team is responsible for meeting the health needs of the population we serve in an effective and sustainable way.

Island Health is organized by the Geographic and Program Structures which includes Integrated Health Services (clinical services) and Corporate and Strategic Services (non-clinical services). The medical staff are organized into Departmental and Operational medical staff structures.

Medical staff can assume various leadership roles within Island Health.  These roles include Department Head, Division Head, Section Head,  Chief of Staff, Executive Medical Director, Medical Director and Medical Lead. These medical leaders are accountable to the Vice President, Medicine, Quality and Academic Affairs, the Chief Executive Officer and the Health Authority Medical Advisory Committee (HAMAC).

Medical staff are both members of a department AND work in association with a region-wide integrated health service or program.        

Island Health's Vision, Purpose and Values are our guiding principles when providing health care services to the populations we serve.
