Welcome message from site

Chilliwack General Hospital is an acute care community-based hospital in the eastern Fraser Valley. There are approximately 135 beds within the facility.

We have a close knit, collaborative rehab team consisting of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Rehab Assistants. We work closely with all the members of our care teams to provide the best possible care for our patients. The interdisciplinary teams rely heavily on our assessments and input when providing care for our patients and in determining their discharge plans, goals, and timelines.

We highly value the opportunity to work with and mentor students from various educational institutions. We are able to provide an excellent learning environment which highlights the benefits, and challenges, of working in a smaller community hospital.
