Provincial Health Services Authority
The Provincial Health Services Authority oversees the co-ordination and delivery of provincial programs and highly specialized health-care services. Highly specialized services include resource-intensive services, such as heart surgery, transplants and cancer treatment, which cannot be delivered in every community.
The provincial authority works with the province’s health authorities and the Ministry of Health to bring health care closer to where B.C. residents live, promote health, manage chronic conditions and reduce the burden of illness.
The Provincial Health Services Authority operates the following provincial agencies and services:
- BC Cancer Agency
- BC Centre for Disease Control
- BC Children's Hospital & Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children
- BC Emergency Health Services
- BC Mental Health and Addiction Services
- BC Renal Agency
