Hearts and Minds

Inspiring care.....

Thanks to generous support from people throughout this region, the ‘I Believe’ campaign for Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre’s (RVH) Phase 1 Expansion was a huge success, exceeding the $35 million goal! We could not have done it without your generous support. Everyday we see the impact those donations have on our patients.

Now that the Phase 1 Expansion is open, we can focus our efforts on bringing more services and programs to the residents of North Simcoe Muskoka. One of our next exciting initiatives is to develop Advanced Cardiac Care at RVH.

We live in an area where heart problems are prevalent and on the rise. North Simcoe Muskoka is the only Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) in the province without advanced cardiac services within its boundaries and as result, more than 3,000 people from Simcoe Muskoka currently travel to Southlake Regional Health Centre each year to receive treatment. The program will provide advanced cardiac diagnostics and interventions, such as coronary angioplasty in the future. This would ensure all North Simcoe Muskoka residents who suffer a heart attack will have access to treatment, which must be received within 90 minutes of a heart episode

The Advanced Cardiac Care unit will allow for interventional and preventative treatment and procedures for our patients now provided at Southlake Regional Health Centre. In the future, two new cardiac catheterization labs will provide advanced cardiac diagnostics and interventions, including angioplasty and angiography. In order to prepare for this change Southlake has agreed to work with RVH to ensure a smooth transition.

We endeavor to provide inspiring and excellent care, and the new Advanced Cardiac Care unit will be a great addition to our hospital. We will need the support of the community in order to be successful.
