Health PEI was created in July 2010 marking a major step toward realizing a One Island Health System that provides Islanders with the right care, by the right provider, in the right place. 

The Health PEI Board of Directors governs the agency, is accountable to the Minister of Health and Wellness and works collectively on behalf of all Islanders to ensure the management and delivery of safe, quality health care. The board also oversees the Chief Executive Officer who works with a broad range of dedicated health care professionals and administrative staff to provide high quality health care that is measured against national standards.
