A vision to Plan our Future. Together.
RVH provides safe, high-quality, specialized services and advanced technology to patients throughout Simcoe Muskoka. We have developed a graduated plan to meet healthcare needs in booming south Simcoe County.
Our long-range planning exercise will not only determine where we provide care, but will redefine how we provide care. We plan to maximize technology to support a “hospital of the future”, while maintaining the highest safety and quality standards.
Seven years after opening our expansion we’ve begun a long-range planning exercise. But why now?
Good planning takes time
Planning is a complex, lengthy process — from 5 to 20 years.
Our ambitions plan will transform healthcare in the region for generations to come. It’s a plan that is aligned with community needs, wants and priorities and is based on a two-campus, integrated approach. This approach ensures that services are made available as soon as possible.
RVH is experiencing critical capacity challenges. On most days every bed is full. In fact, our occupancy rate is consistently over 115 per cent. It’s an important driver for RVH to keep its safety promise.
Running out of room
RVH’s 40-acre site on Georgian Drive is almost fully utilized and expansion is simply not possible without significant redevelopment to maximize available space.
Urgent needs not met
The 2012 expansion added important programs but didn’t address all urgent priorities like obstetrics, neonatal care, pediatrics, intensive care and surgical services.
The population in south Simcoe County is booming and is projected to double over the next 20 years, with 170,000 new residents—over 74,000 in Innisfil alone.
