An independent ORH study helped British Columbia Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) secure $91.4 million of additional funding over the next three years. ORH forecasted that BC’s growing and aging population would increase demand for services by approximately 6% per year over the next five years. The data and evidence from ORH’s review was used by BCEHS in developing their 2020 Action Plan and supporting business case. This additional funding from the Ministry of Health will provide six new ambulances, more paramedics and dispatchers, together with new equipment and programs. This will enable BCEHS to improve emergency response times and become more sustainable and innovative. For more information, please read the BCEHS news release.
