What is Facility Engagement?2023-11-14T15:22:23-08:00

TheĀ Facility Engagement Initiative is a program funded through the Physician Master Agreement (PMA) – a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Ministry of Health, the 5 BC health authorities and Doctors of BC (DoBC). The Specialist Services Committee (SSC) at DoBC disperses Facility Engagement funds on a sliding scale to acute care facilities with in-patient beds around the province. Squamish General Hospital is a Tier 2 site (21-50 beds) and receives $150K annually in Facility Engagement (FE) funding.

The main purpose of FE funding is to increase meaningful physician involvement in health authority decisions about the work environment and delivery of patient care. The Squamish General Hospital MSA holds fiduciary responsibility for FE funds; decisions regarding projects and use of funds are made by the SGH Facility Engagement Working Group. The FE Working Group is led by the Chair and the MSA President.
