WKBR Hospital District

Welcome to the webpage for the West Kootenay-Boundary Regional Hospital District.
Here you will find information about the WKBRHD's mandate, mission statement, Board,
meetings and newsletter.

Mandate

Hospital districts are legislated under the Hospital District Act.

The main purpose of the WKBRHD is to provide funding for hospital equipment and capital projects. Projects and priorities are proposed each year by the Interior Health Authority (IHA), with a list developed in consultation between the IHA and WKBRHD. The hospital district typically pays for 40% of the cost of approved projects while the remaining 60% is funded by the Provincial Government or through donations provided by local hospital foundations.

For more information on programs and services offered by Interior Health, please visit the Interior Health website at www.interiorhealth.ca
