Completed Projects

Thanks to funding from Facility Engagement, the South Island MSA offers micro-grants to support physician-led, grassroots change in our facilities.  Since 2014, physicians have been working with each other and with Island Health to make their workplace, relationships, and processes even better.  Stories about completed projects are listed here, contact info@southislandmsa.ca for further project details.
