West Coast General Hospital

West Coast General Hospital was built in 2001 with a 52-bed capacity, 3 of which are in the Intensive Care Unit. The hospital provides 22 services including medical imaging, a medical laboratory, telehealth, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and an All Nations’ Healing Room. Additional services specific to the First Nations community are available.  

In 1990 the West Coast General Hospital Foundation was established, which has since raised funds to support projects and new equipment such as a new CT Scanner and 15 overhead power lifts and tracks. Volunteer opportunities are available via the Vancouver Island Health Authority.
