Mission: To achieve excellence in health, healing and learning through working together

Vision: Healthy people, healthy communities – for generations

Nova Scotia Health Authority provides health services to Nova Scotians and some specialized services to Maritimers and Atlantic Canadians. We operate hospitals, health centres and community-based programs across the province. Our team of health professionals includes employees, doctors, researchers, learners and volunteers that provide the health care or services you may need.

Partnerships are important to us. We work in partnership with community groups, schools, governments, foundations and auxiliaries and community health boards. Whether we are hosting wellness programs in the community, conducting innovative research in labs, or helping a patient recover in hospital; we are creating a healthier Nova Scotia.

We are guided by strong provincial leadership and local leadership teams in four zones:


Central - Halifax, Eastern Shore and West Hants
Eastern - Cape Breton, Guysborough and Antigonish areas
Western - Annapolis Valley, South Shore and South West Nova Scotia
Northern  -  Colchester-East  Hants, Cumberland and Pictou areas
