Interior Health and the Regional Hospital Districts
Regional Hospital Districts (RHDs) provide a portion of funding to Interior Health to build and renovate facilities and to purchase equipment. There are seven RHDs in the health authority. RHD boards are comprised of municipal and electoral area directors who are members of the regional district.
RHDs vote on and approve the local share of funding for capital costs associated with the construction, acquisition and maintenance of facilities and equipment in the health region.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is established between the health authority and all the RHDs to strengthen information sharing, transparency and collaboration between IH and the RHDs. The MOU will be reviewed every two years by IH and the RHDs.
