Institution Description
The Lillooet District Hospital is a six-bed community hospital providing standard and emergency medical services 24-hours per day. Additional services include Maternity Care, Medical Imaging (X-ray, Electrocardiogram, Holter Monitoring), Laboratory, Day Surgeries, Dietician/Diabetes Educator, Mental Health and Addictions, Alcohol and Drug Counseling, Home and Community Care, Home Support, Residential Care, Palliative Care and Respite Care. Attached to the hospital is the 22 bed Mountain View Lodge Residential Care Facility.

In emergency situations this community and physicians are supported by the High Acuity Response Team (HART). HART team consists of dedicated, highly trained critical care nurses responding with a BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) basic life support ambulance team to provide ground or air transport for acutely ill and injured patients from outlying rural and remote communities to higher levels of care. When required, a respiratory therapist will also be called in to assist. This advanced level of support allows the physician to stay in the community while knowing that his/her critically ill patients are being transported by a team of specialists. HART nurses for this community are based at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, where they support the Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit when not involved in patient transports.
