North Campus

‘North Campus’ Redevelopment and Expansion

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre’s (RVH) current facility needs to double in size to meet the healthcare needs of  Barrie and area’s exploding population.

To keep pace with that growth, another 800,000 square-feet of space needs to be added to the north campus, including over 250 new beds.  Most of that expansion needs to happen within the next five to ten years.

Over the past year, RVH has consulted significantly with staff, physicians, patients, families and residents throughout the region. That broad consultation has enabled architects to develop several options for redevelopment, which include construction of a large, inpatient tower on the current 40-acre site, as well as significant expansion and/or relocation of many programs.
