Fraser Health

Fraser Health Authority is the fastest growing health authority with 1.8 million residents, 25,000 staff and 2,600 physicians. Our population is diverse and ranges from urban centres to remote rural areas.

Health Innovation

The diversity of our region along with campuses of Simon Fraser University, Kwantlen Polytechnic and BCIT makes Fraser Health the ideal test-bed for health innovations and with a young and tech savvy population there is a rich breeding ground for innovators.

Improving quality of life

Fraser Health can act as the catalyst to produce health-related technologies that improve the lives of our patients, create economic strength and provide fulfilling employment prospects for our communities.

Health care Incubator

Given the worldwide challenge of health care inflation, Fraser Health has the opportunity to be the world’s incubator for affordable health care solutions.
