Victoria General provides comprehensive hospital and emergency care to all 765,000 residents of Vancouver Island and patients throughout BC.

Specializing in trauma, pediatrics and neuroscience, Victoria General Hospital is the busiest hospital on Vancouver Island, serving nearly 100,000 patients last year.

Victoria General Hospital’s Emergency Department treated 58,421 people in crisis last year. As the trauma centre for all Vancouver Island, patients who have major accidents anywhere in the region are transferred by helicopter or ambulance for vital care. The emergency department is built with state-of-the-art isolation rooms and a decontamination area specifically designed for managing pandemics and severe outbreaks.

Victoria General is also the Pediatric Trauma Centre for Vancouver Island, and the emergency room is specially built and equipped with the latest in pediatric technology.

As Vancouver Island’s pediatric specialty hospital, newborns, infants and children 18 and younger receive the specialized care they need from a team of pediatric experts. Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Units are dedicated to providing optimal care for critically ill and injured children. Because only 2% of admissions require transfer to the BC Children’s Hospital, more than 98% of these children receive this care right here at home, close to their families.

Victoria General Hospital is a teaching hospital for UBC’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery and students in their third and fourth year of medical school at University of Victoria.

Since 1983, this facility has provided our Vancouver Island community with essential hospital care services.
