Hospital Programs records

  • GR-3994
  • Series
  • 1959 - 1987

The series consists of records documenting the operations and administration of hospitals in BC from 1959-1987. The records cover programs within individual hospitals, finance and construction, personnel, medical staff bylaws, rules and regulations, equipment and other topics. They also include accreditation surveys and results, hospital reviews, and reports by Ministry of Health staff on topics such as medical records. The records include policy precedents, lists of staff and administrators, and information on financial proceedings and grants. The records were created under the Hospital Act (RSBC 1979, c.176), the Hospital District Act (RSBC 1979, c.178), and the Hospital Insurance Act (RSBC, 1979, c. 180). They were created by the BC Hospital Programs Division and its predecessor, BC Hospital Insurance Service, both under the Ministry of Health.

The series is arranged by hospital or topic, then by date. The records include correspondence, reports, financial records, bylaws, project files, strategic plans, and policy documents. The records are classified under the one-time Hospital Programs operational files (schedule 880238).
