Welcome to Providence Health Care. You have made an important decision in joining our team; one we believe that will benefit you as a practitioner as much as we know your clinical, teaching and research contributions will benefit our patients, residents and community.
PHC is the largest faith-based health care organization in Canada, providing a broad spectrum of care and service to patients with diverse medical needs spanning all age groups.
We are an organization comprised of three acute-care sites and multiple residential-care facilities. We not only provide primary and secondary care to our populations of emphasis and communities of need; we are also a highly-regarded Academic Health Science Centre providing cutting-edge tertiary and quaternary services that make us provincial, national and international leaders in many areas of endeavour and discovery.
As a key leader in the UBC-affiliated teaching hospital system, in addition to our affiliation with other Academic Partners such as SFU and BCIT, we are proud of our faculty’s contribution to the development of tomorrow’s health professionals, teachers and scientists.
We value our commitment to outstanding academic leadership. On many fronts, our staff are changing the breadth and scope of medical practice, whether it be through the translation of molecular research into clinical applications, innovative technological advancement, or high-impact clinical trials and population-based research.
Our goal is to lead and continue as a major provider in the delivery of community and academic health care in the province of BC and beyond. We are committed to quality, performance improvement, patient safety, and patient-centred care.
We will achieve our vision by focusing our time, attention and resources on key strategies: operational excellence, population health improvement, attracting and retaining the best people, supporting research and new knowledge integration and achieving strategic growth.
PHC is about “how you want to be treated”, whether you are a patient, family member, or a member of our staff. We ask that you keep this principle at the forefront as you integrate your practice within the PHC community.
Our team in the Medical Affairs Department is here to help. Please call on us, and welcome to PHC!
