Contact Name: Sherri-lynn Crouse

Eastern Health is the largest integrated health authority in Newfoundland and Labrador, with 12,000 dedicated employees serving a regional population of more than 293,790. We offer the full continuum of health and community services, including public health, long-term care, community services, hospital care and unique provincial programs and services.

In addition to its regional responsibilities, Eastern Health has provincial responsibility for providing tertiary, or high level health services. These services are offered through the organization’s academic healthcare facilities and through provincial initiatives such as the Provincial Genetics and Provincial Perinatal Programs. Eastern Health joins with many partners to educate the next generation of health providers and to create new knowledge through research and other activities.

The geographic catchment area for Eastern Health is that part of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador east of (and including) Port Blandford.  This area includes the Avalon, Burin and Bonavista PEninsulas as well as Bell Island.  The geographic territory covered by Eastern Health is approximately 21, 000 kms.  Settlement patterns, due in large part to the region's historic ties to the cod fishery have resulted in many small communities scattered predominately along the coastline of the peninsulas.  The area also takes in the capital of the province and the largest metropolitan area, the St. John's CMA (census metropolitian area).  The boundaries of Eastern Health include 111 incorporated municipalitites, 69 local service districts and 65 unincorporated municiple units.
