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.
