Calling Nova Scotia home means ocean views, active living and welcoming communities. Practicing here means working with passionate colleagues, providing world class care, and helping people be healthy and stay healthy, for generations. The Nova Scotia Health Authority provides health services to Nova Scotians and some specialized services to Atlantic Canadians. We operate hospitals, health centres and collaborative community-based programs across the province.

The Nova Scotia Health Authority has outlined a vision for people-centered health care that will enable the system to think and act as one. A critical step in enabling this vision of a provincial approach to health services was the consolidation of the nine existing district health authorities into one Nova Scotia Health Authority, with the IWK Health Centre remaining as a separate authority.
