Interior Health Authority logo

We are IH. People committed to caring. Caring is at the heart of who we are. Inspiring hope and trust as we provide the highest standard of health care for the people who live here. For over 20 years, we’ve been working and partnering for the health and wellbeing of everyone in the BC Interior – over 834,000 people. So we can all enjoy a healthier tomorrow.

By working together with the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions, as well as health organizations, communities and leaders, we deliver services and solutions that make a positive difference in the lives of everyone in the region – all 215,000 square kilometres located on the ancestral, unceded, and traditional territories of the seven Interior Region First Nations: Dãkelh Dené, St’át’imc, Syilx, Tŝilhqot’in, Ktunaxa, Secwépemc, and Nlaka’pamux Nations. We honour and thank the First Nations as the traditional stewards of these lands and waters. IH acknowledges Métis Nation BC, the 15 Chartered Métis Communities within the Interior, and the continued connection to this land.
