About Us

Perinatal Services BC has an oversight responsibility that is province-wide including:

  • Accountability for level 3 neonatal intensive care (NICU) and specialized acute maternity beds, and
  • Oversight via collaboration with stakeholders, and especially health authorities, regarding level 1 and 2 neonatal and high risk maternity beds, as well as other perinatal services across the care continuum, from public health, to primary and community care, to hospital care.

PSBC uses a client-centric population health approach as the orientation for perinatal services across the province and as the basis of its shared mandate with partners and stakeholders.
