Hospital District

The boundaries of the Comox Strathcona Regional Hospital District (CSRHD) encompass the boundaries of the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and the Strathcona Regional District (SRD), and include all the directors from those two regional district boards. Regional hospital districts are governed by the Hospital District Act. Some of the purposes of a regional hospital district are:

  • to establish, acquire, construct, reconstruct, enlarge, operate and maintain hospitals and hospital facilities;
  • to grant aid for the establishment, acquisition, reconstruction, enlargement, operation and maintenance of hospitals and hospital facilities;
  • to assume obligations of any member municipality, or any improvement district not within the definition "municipality", or any hospital corporation, with respect to the repayment of money borrowed and provided for the financing of hospital projects and interest on it, or to provide reimbursement to a municipality, improvement district or hospital corporation for money provided for financing hospital projects that were raised or obtained otherwise than by borrowing;

Although the Comox Strathcona Hospital District does not operate any facilities, it does provide capital funding. This funding is cost-shared with the province paying 60 percent and the CSRHD paying 40 percent. The facilities that receive funding from the Comox Strathcona Regional Hospital District are as follows:

  • Campbell River & District General Hospital
  • Cortes Health Centre
  • Cumberland Regional Hospital Laundry Society
  • Gold River HealthClinic
  • Kyuquot Health Centre
  • Sayward Primary Health Centre
