RVH has been caring for our community since 1897 when the very first four-bed hospital opened in Barrie. In 2012 we opened our $450 million expansion that doubled the size of the building.

Much has changed since our humble beginnings and yet one thing has always remained the same and that is our dedication to our patients and their families. You are at the centre of everything we do and we are committed to Make each life better. Together.

Our patient-centred MY CARE philosophy is our road map which guides everything we do. We strive to make RVH the best place to work, practice, volunteer and most importantly to receive care.

RVH is continually on a journey of transformation. We are led by our unwavering commitment to safety and quality, with an eye to advancing innovation. We will push ourselves to the next level – raising the bar to bring exceptional care close to home for residents of Simcoe Muskoka.

Our recipe for success is simple. It includes:

• An unwavering focus on patients and their families

• A newly-expanded facility which offers specialized services not available elsewhere in our region

• $70 million in advanced technology

• Almost 4,000 highly-skilled employees, physicians and compassionate volunteers

RVH’s MY CARE Strategic Plan; is a plan which says every patient has a right to expect the best possible experience in our health centre.

Always. Every day. And without exception.

That’s our commitment to you.
