Staff communication tools

VCH provides staff with a number of employee communication tools, including a newsletter and executive blog. While available to everyone, these tools are internally-facing with the topics intended to be of greatest use to our employees and physicians.

  • VCH webmail, where staff can log into their VCH email accounts from computers outside of the VCH network.

  • VCH News, where staff can find out what's happening across VCH.

  • Up for Discussion, VCH's blog for staff. Posting and commenting is reserved for those with a valid VCH email address

  • Medicalstaff.vch.ca, where physicians, midwives and dentists who work at VCH can get information and tools specific to them, including job postings.
