The RVH Foundation is an essential partner in providing exceptional care in the Simcoe-Muskoka region. The Foundation supports Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre with the necessary funding to bring urgently needed state-of-the-art medical equipment, facilities and health care programs close to home.
In 1982, the Foundation was established to provide funding that would improve patient care - whether through medical equipment and technology, operating projects or capital projects. Over the past 25 years, the Foundation has successfully fulfilled its mission through the purchase of millions of dollars worth of medical equipments including a CT Scanner and Angio/Interventional equipment. When the region outgrew the old hospital in downtown Barrie in the mid-90's, residents rallied around RVH and contributed over $15 million through the Foundation to build our new, state-of-the-art facility.
We are looking forward to the next decade and the continued developments and growth for RVH. With your help and financial support, we will continue to improve the quality of health care available in our community - close to home.
About The RVH Foundation
While government funding does cover your stay, much of the equipment, technology and even things like hospital beds, wheelchairs and furniture are funded by the generosity of individuals in the community. Giving to RVH makes a difference in the health care available to the entire region of Simcoe-Muskoka.
Making a donation to RVH will:
Help purchase urgently needed medical and surgical equipment and state-of-the-art tools and technology;
Build facilities necessary to better serve and meet the specialized needs of our patients;
Improve education and awareness initiatives;
Create a hospital that attracts and retains the best and brightest medical staff; and
Help bring more medical procedures and technology close to home.
