Our people

Over 29,000 employees, 3,000 physicians and more than 6,000 volunteers provide our services and support our patients, residents and clients. 

A variety of general practitioners and specialists provide high-quality care and service to patients and their families across our region, including in our hospitals, long-term care homes and other community locations. Physicians are valuable partners in health care. All practitioners are required to be licensed by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia and are represented collectively by Doctors of BC.

Medical staff include all physicians, nurse practitioners, dentists and midwives. Each practice group is governed by their own licensing regulatory body.
