In British Columbia, more than 500,000 hospital-based surgeries and treatments are performed each year.
Note this site reports on wait times for adult and pediatric elective surgeries done in publicly-funded facilities throughout the province. More than half of all surgeries are emergency or unplanned procedures and never appear on a waitlist. These cases are not included on this website.
To protect patient privacy procedures with volumes less than five cases are not shown.
Information in the Surgical Patient Registry comes directly from facilities throughout BC. The accuracy of the registry is entirely dependent on the data submitted by the facilities. The Ministry of Health Services assumes no liability for the hospital information.
