Health PEI is responsible for the delivery of publicly funded health services in Prince Edward Island. The organization operates hospitals, health centres, public long-term care nursing facilities and community-based programs and services.
Health PEI’s primary goals are to:
- provide Islanders with safe, quality, person-centered care and services;
- provide access to appropriate care by the right provider in the right setting; and
- optimize resources and processes to sustain a viable health care system.
The Health PEI Board of Directors
governs the agency, is accountable to the Minister of Health and Wellness and works collectively on behalf of all Islanders to ensure the management and delivery of safe, quality health care. The board also oversees the Chief Executive Officer who works with a broad range of dedicated health care professionals and administrative staff to provide high quality health care that is measured against national standards.
Health PEI was created in July 2010 marking a major step toward realizing a One Island Health System that provides Islanders with the right care, by the right provider, in the right place.
