Welcome message from site

Eagle Ridge Hospital is a 175-bed hospital located in the city of Port Moody, a small community with an impressive natural setting. We are located 40 minutes east of Vancouver at the end of the Burrard Inlet.

Our staff of 16 physiotherapists provide a variety of inpatient and outpatient services (orthopaedics, neuro, specialized rehabilitation, amputees, pediatrics, and geriatrics). We strive to serve our patients with a collaborative team-oriented approach. We support ongoing education for all our staff, hold regular inservices, and participate in professional practice.

Most of our staff live in the Tri-Cities area and take pride in supporting our communities. We participate in local fundraisers such as the Hike for Hospice for the Crossroads Hospice Society or the Big Bike Ride for the Heart & Stroke Foundation. We also enjoy socializing together outside of work at nearby restaurants, hiking the local trails, or kayaking in the Burrard Inlet.
