Facility Engagement in Fraser Health

Eleven hospitals in Fraser Health are involved in BC’s Facility Engagement Initiative (FEI). Established through the 2014 Physician Master Agreement, FEI aims to strengthen communication and collaboration between our health authority and the medical staff working in our hospitals, ultimately to benefit patient care.

Through a formal physician society structure and funding, medical staff members have tools and funding from the Specialist Services Committee (SSC) to work together with each other, administrators and health authority leadership to strengthen relationships and increase meaningful physician involvement in decision-making. Physicians can also identify priorities in their work environment and patient care, and lead local activities tailored to their hospital.
