The series consists of correspondence and other records of the executive director’s office, Hospital Programs, Ministry of Health. The correspondence is between members of the Health Programs executive team (executive director, regional directors, Assistant Deputy Minister, Deputy Minister, and Minister of Health) and regional hospitals or health care facilities in British Columbia. The correspondence documents routine business activities relating to hospital reviews, hospital programs, staffing levels, hospital expansion, hospital expenditures, operating budgets and other financial/funding issues, hospital complaint files, hospital annual reports, and regional hospital district matters. The records were created by the Ministry of Health’s Hospital Programs division and Hospital Insurance Service between 1974-1989. These records were created under the Hospital Act (RSBC 1996, c. 200), Health Act (RSBC 1979, c. 161), and Health District Act (RSBC 1996, c. 202).

The records are arranged alphabetically by hospital or facility name and by ministry file code.

Hospital land titles and authorization records

  • GR-3653
  • Series
  • 1942-1986

The series consists of correspondence, memoranda, news releases, notes, financial statements, leases, land deeds and certificates for hospital land across British Columbia. The records were created between 1942 and 1986, with the majority of the files dating to the 1960s and 1970s. The series was created by the Hospital Programs branch of the Ministry of Health and documents the Division’s property management functions. The series consists of case files relating to the acquisition and disposal of hospital property, as well as responses to surveys sent by the Ministry of Health, and correspondence with various Land Registry Offices across the province. The surveys sent by the Ministry of Health requested that hospitals send details of their property in order to verify the existing property information held on record by the Ministry. Many of the records appear to have been generated in response to section 41 of the Hospital Act (RSBC 1960 c. 178), which states that, if a hospital is leased or transferred to another body, this action requires the written approval of the Minister.

Records in this series are covered by a variety of BC government ARCS numbers. Files are generally arranged alphabetically by the name of the hospital, although correspondence, survey, and disposition files are sometimes interfiled out of alphabetical order.

Private hospital establishment and inspection records

  • GR-3652
  • Series
  • 1941-1982

The series consists of incoming and outgoing correspondence, memoranda, financial statements, lists and inventories and sale agreements relating to private hospitals across the province. The records were created between 1941 and 1982 by the British Columbia Hospital Insurance Service and its successor body, the Hospital programs branch of the Ministry of Health. The records provide evidence of the licensing function of the branch, and provide information about the administrative structure of private hospitals in the province. Under the Hospital Act (RSBC 1960, c. 178, s. 10) no private hospital could be licensed without first receiving approval from the Chief Inspector. The series also provides evidence of the closure of private hospitals and the transferal of patients to other facilities. The series also includes a number of inspection reports for private facilities, although these are by no means complete and GR-2565 and GR-2567 provide additional inspection reports.

The series is arranged alphabetically by property name.
