A state-of-the-art trauma treatment centre
If you have a serious accident, there’s a good chance you will be treated at Victoria General Hospital. Major trauma patients from across Vancouver Island are transferred here by helicopter or ambulance. The emergency department has state-of-the-art isolation rooms and a decontamination area specifically designed for managing pandemics and severe outbreaks.
A centre for neurology excellence
Our neuroscience experts treat a range of conditions, including trauma, epilepsy, tumours, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease. Victoria General Hospital operates a regional Stroke Program, and the Stroke Rapid Assessment Unit, two specialized teams that provide world-class stroke care in minimal time, often entirely circumnavigating effects of these potentially devastating events.
The leading maternity and pediatric hospital
In addition to being the regional delivery centre for newborns, Victoria General Hospital is also the pediatric specialty hospital for Vancouver Island. Dedicated pediatric trauma and neonatal intensive care units provide expert care for critically ill and injured children, and the emergency room is specially equipped with the latest in pediatric technology. Thanks to world-class physicians and high-end equipment, less than 1% of pediatric patients have to be transferred to the mainland.
