Our number one value is “patients first.” PHSA is the only organization of its kind in Canada. Each of our programs and services offers a unique culture, a strong leadership presence, in-depth mentorship programs, and an inspiring environment that will motivate you to excel every day.


Our programs and services serve the entire province of British Columbia and are focused on the following specific populations with specialized care needs:

  • Children
  • Women
  • Patients with cancer
  • Patients with heart disease
  • Patients with kidney disease
  • Patients with mental health and addictions
  • Patients requiring organ transplants
  • Patients with a communicable disease

In addition, we have been given the mandate by the provincial government to collaborate with health care providers and other stakeholders to find province-wide solutions for other health concerns.

At PHSA, we are committed to creating an environment where:

  • You can do your best every day.
  • You can voice your ideas and solutions.
  • You are listened to and your opinions matter.
  • You feel respected.
  • You know the work you do makes a difference.
  • You feel engaged and empowered at work.
  • You actively encourage others to join the PHSA.

We also empower employees to redesign their work processes to reduce waste and improve patient safety, quality and outcomes. We are working toward the kind of long-term cultural growth that will result in all our dedicated medical and non-medical personnel contributing to, seeking out and implementing better processes, which will continually drive out the waste and improve efficiency. Through these efforts, we are not only reducing costs, but we are building on our reputation of providing a higher quality of care for our patients.


As part of your employment package, you would have received copies of several key, organization-wide policies that you should familiarize yourself with. If you misplace your printed copies, you can always access electronic versions on POD, PHSA’s Intranet, accessible from any computer connected to the PHSA network.


PHSA has a mandate to advance innovative health care practices through research, and to help educate the next generation of health care professionals for the province.

PHSA is one of the most research-intensive academic health care organizations in Canada. Its commitment to advancing knowledge in health care is reflected by the extent of research being done within its eight specialized health agencies and by its research partners.

As an organization, we have more than 500 investigators engaged in health research. They are supported by over $150 million in research grants and funding, making PHSA one of the largest health research organizations in Canada.
