Lillooet

Lillooet’s legendary mountain scenery, history and vibrant community make it a wonderful place to live, work and play. Encapsulated by breathtaking mountains and nestled on the banks of the Fraser River, Lillooet is brimming with amusement for people of all ages. Hundreds of kilometers of trail systems and surrounding wilderness provide incredible opportunities for hiking, wildlife viewing, ice climbing, and endless opportunities to explore. With early spring, warm dry summers, long mild autumns and short winters with just a touch of snow, Lillooet has one of the most pleasant climates in Canada. The economy of Lillooet is based on forestry, farming and tourism creating a down to earth and welcoming community.

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.
