About us

Central Health has integrated into NL Health Services, the province’s single health authority. NL Health Services brings together the province’s four former regional health authorities (Central Health, Eastern Heath, Western Health, and Labrador-Grenfell Health) and the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information (NLCHI) to deliver health services to people across the province.


Central Zone is the second largest health zone in Newfoundland and Labrador Health Services, serving approximately 90,000 people (17 per cent of the province’s population) living in 176 communities.


With a geographical area encompassing more than half the total land mass of the island, the Central Health region extends from Charlottetown in the east, Fogo Island in the north, Harbour Breton in the south, to Baie Verte in the west.


Central Zone provides a variety of primary, secondary, long-term care, community health, and other enhanced secondary services through:
