The Canucks use private MRI facitities, etc. that they pay for. The issue that can arise is booking an operating room if the surgery needs to be done in a hospital rather than private surgical clinic. However the Canucks often use Cambie Surgery Centre, a private hospital as they specialize in Orthopaedic arthroscopic/sport injuries) treatment.

My urgent elective (i.e. I am not on the cusp of death) surgery has a three month wait to get into an operating room.
