At Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), our values guide how we work together to create a workplace where everyone is pulling in the same direction toward a common purpose – to deliver an exceptional care experience for all.
We care for everyone
We are always learning
We strive for better results
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.
As an organization, we continually strive for better results as we deliver safe, quality care. Read our 2022/23 Impact Report for a glimpse at some of the progress we made over the past year.Read the 2022/23 Impact Report
