Basic rooms or preferred accommodation

A basic inpatient medical or surgical room is a shared room between three or four different patients and is no cost for patients with BC Medical Services Plan coverage. The specific amenities included in a basic room does vary for each hospital.  The number of patients per room and amenities available for specialty services like maternity care vary by site.

While there will be a privacy curtain between patients, should you desire more privacy, our Preferred Accommodation Program gives you the option of staying in a private or semi-private room, based on availability.

Preferred accommodation

If requested by you, our Preferred Accommodation Program (private or semi-private room) does come at a daily charge but your extended health insurance may cover all or the majority of the cost. Any revenue from this program goes to support the operations of the unit where you stay and receive care. To find out the details of your coverage for this benefit, please contact your insurance provider.

Patient rental services (TV & phone)

Television and telephone rental services are operated by Hospitality Network.  A portion of the revenue generated is returned to the hospital.  A rental form is available at or near all nursing stations. 


As a step towards reconciliation, Interior Health acknowledges the land that we live, work, and play on as the traditional territories of the Dakelh Dene, Ktunaxa, Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, St’at’imc, Syilx and Tsilhqot’in peoples. It is with humility that we continue to strengthen our relationships with the First Nation, Métis, and Inuit peoples of the interior.
