Privacy and Personal Health Records
We take all reasonable steps to make sure that your personal information is treated confidentially, is only used for these specific purposes and is securely stored as directed by the BC Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA).
If you are a patient in the hospital or residential care, it is standard practice to give people who phone and ask about you, information confirming your admission and location. If you do not wish us to give out this information, please tell the Admitting clerk or someone in your care area.

AccommodationWhile You are in Hospital
Single Room Maternity Care (SRMC) is a birthing alternative available for women with low-risk pregnancies. SRMC allows women to remain in one home-like room for their entire stay. This allows increased continuity through care by the same nursing team during labour, birth, and postpartum.
