We strive for better results

We believe in achieving better results ​across all functions of health care leading to better patient ​outcomes and improving health care.

At Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), we are on a mission to create healthy communities for everyone.

Our team of more than 30,000 staff, medical professionals and researchers are encouraged to think boldly about everything from new surgical techniques to funding models, and we are proud to bring these innovations to life when we believe they will lead to the best possible outcomes for our patients and clients. In fact, we have worked hard to create a collaborative culture where innovation happens naturally and where failures we can learn from are just as important as successes.
