Gradual Development of a South Campus

While we complete the redevelopment and expansion of the north campus, we are also focusing on expanding services to residents of south Simcoe County, through the development of a South Campus.

It is important to note that the North and South Campus plans are completely interdependent and one will not address the needs of the community without the other.

This building will also be completed in stages:

  • Ambulatory health hub in 10 years.
  • Add inpatient units that aren’t dependent on a 24/7 Emergency Department, such as seniors care or rehab, in 15 years.
  • Complete a full-service, acute care hospital after 20 years.

At its maturity the South Campus will house 285 inpatient beds and total 780,000 square feet.

Why a South Campus?

RVH is bursting at the seams. One of the harsh lessons of the pandemic is that we cannot go back to hallway medicine.

The population of south Simcoe County is exploding. More than 170,000 new residents will move to this area in the next 20 years. RVH’s South Campus is needed to meet the healthcare needs of this booming region.

RVH’s South Campus will be built in stages, beginning with an ambulatory health hub and expanding to be a full-service hospital within 20 years.

RVH’s integrated, two-site model includes a doubling in size of its current North Campus on Barrie’s Georgian Drive and the addition of a nine-storey inpatient tower.

The North and South Campuses are completely interdependent; one can’t proceed without the other. This plan is integrated, not duplicated.

South Campus site selection

Based on detailed and weighted mandatory and desirable criteria, along with broad community engagement, the committee will recommend a minimum of two preferred sites to the overseeing committee and ultimately this process will determine what is the right location for a South Campus.
