About Just Like Home Lodge:

Keeping loved ones close when it matters most will soon become reality for North Island residents. The Strathcona Regional District (SRD) is happy to announce that with a 40-year land license from Island Health it will build and operate a safe and welcoming home-away-from-home for regionally based patients and loved ones needing to travel to Campbell River for specialized medical care or procedures that are not available in their communities.

The North Island Hospital, Campbell River & District (also referred to as Campbell River Hospital) serves 32 communities of North Vancouver Island and the North Coast. The Just Like Home Lodge, steps away from the Campbell River Hospital, will be a safe haven for patients and loved ones to support each other while connecting with others through shared experiences together in their times of need. This 10-bedroom lodge will feature separate sleeping rooms with private washrooms, a communal living space, a shared kitchen, laundry facilities, and parking for Recreational Vehicles with hook-ups.
