A Message From Michael and Janice

We know quick access to quality healthcare is a top priority for you and your family. That’s why Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre is expanding care in south Simcoe County.

Why now?

In 2012, RVH doubled in size and introduced new services and advanced technology, including a regional cancer centre, advanced cardiac program, child and youth mental health and expanded kidney care. Patient volumes are surging and RVH has no room to build on its current 40-acre Georgian Drive site.

Meanwhile the population in south Simcoe County is soaring. Did you know the population of Innisfil, Bradford West Gwillimbury and Barrie will exceed 415,000 people by 2041?

Charting RVH’s course for the future is a complex and lengthy process; planning and building another hospital could take 20 years or more. RVH wants to expand healthcare to south Simcoe residents much sooner than that.

That’s why our plan takes a graduated approach to developing a south campus. As a first step, RVH will begin providing some outpatient services in Innisfil’s Rizzardo Health and Wellness Centre when it opens in early-2019 while we plan for the south campus.

Broad and genuine engagement will be key to the success of RVH’s planning and there will be many opportunities for you to learn more about our plans and provide your input. Your feedback will ultimately be reflected in the location, design and clinical services provided at the future south campus.

RVH is your regional health centre. Add your voice to this important conversation as we Plan our Future. Together.
