History

The Dept. of Health Services and Hospital Insurance was established in 1959 in accordance with the Department of Health Services and Hospital Insurance Act (SBC 1946, c. 31). The Dept. of Health Services and Hospital Insurance was the successor to the Department of Health and Welfare which was originally responsible for both the functions of public health and social welfare. (SBC 1959, c. 38). In 1959, the functions of health and social welfare were separated to form two new departments, the Dept. of Social Welfare and the Dept. of Health Services and Hospital Insurance. The newly named Dept. of Health Services and Hospital Insurance was originally organized into three branches: health, mental health services (transferred from the jurisdiction of Provincial Secretary), and hospital insurance service. Another government reorganization in 1972, and a major review of provincial health services, eliminated the Mental Health Branch by assigning its resources to various components within the department. The department was renamed the Dept. of Health in 1973 (SBC 1973, c. 109).
