Nova Scotia Health Authority
On April 1, 2015, Nova Scotia launched a new health system structure to create a foundation for better health and health care.
The nine previous district health authorities have come together as the Nova Scotia Health Authority , partnering with the IWK Health Centre to plan and deliver care for Nova Scotians.
You can visit the new Nova Scotia Health Authority website to learn more. Information on local programs, services and facilities continues to be available on the former district health authority websites at this time.
