Health system update

The B.C. health system was impacted by the global CrowdStrike disruption on July 18. We are pleased to share that, due to the tremendous efforts by everyone involved in this response, the risk is now managed. We thank our staff and medical staff for quickly implementing contingency plans to ensure that our health care services remained operational. Thank you to our patients, residents and families for their understanding and patience.
