About Us


Eastern Health acknowledges the island of Ktaqmkuk (Newfoundland)
as the unceded, traditional territory of the Beothuk and the Mi’kmaq;
and Labrador as the traditional and ancestral homelands of
the Innu of Nitassinan, the Inuit of Nunatsiavut, and the Inuit of NunatuKavut.

The Eastern Regional Health Authority (Eastern Health) is Newfoundland and Labrador’s largest integrated health authority, providing a full continuum of health and community services, including public health, long-term care and acute (hospital) care.

Eastern Health is one of four regional health authorities in Newfoundland and Labrador working together with the Department of Health and Community Services. We provide high quality services to more than 300,000 people living in communities stretching from St. John’s to Port Blandford, including all communities on the Avalon, Burin and Bonavista Peninsulas. In addition, we are also responsible for several unique provincial programs. Through a contract agreement, we also provide specialized medical care to the people from the French islands of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon.

Our approximately 13,000 health care and support services professionals believe in providing the best quality of care and health service delivery in our region and in the province.

We are governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees appointed by the Minister of Health and Community Services according to the Regional Health Authorities Act.
