PHC delivers compassionate, person – and family – centred care to 350,000 patients and residents each year.  

PHC is guided by the principle ‘How You Want to Be Treated’ and is the largest Catholic health care organization in Canada. We deliver compassionate, person – and family-centred care to 350,000 patients and residents each year within acute care, residential and rehabilitation services, while training medical professionals and making innovative advances in research.

Person – and family-centred care is an approach to the planning, delivery and evaluation of health care that is grounded in mutually beneficial partnerships among healthcare providers, the people we serve and their families. They determine how they will participate in their care and decision-making, so that we may continue to provide the best care experience with respect and dignity, collaboration, participation and information sharing.

As PHC is the provincial centre of care for people with often-intensive health needs, we specialize in six groups:

  • People with heart and/or lung diseases
  • People with kidney disease
  • People with mental illnesses
  • Older British Columbians (residential care, seniors & geriatrics)
  • People living with HIV/AIDS
  • People with urban health issues (homelessness, drug & alcohol-related issues & malnutrition)
