Hearts and Minds Staff Campaign

Dear friends and colleagues, 

It’s the final countdown!

Can you believe that we have already raised $23 million of our $25 million Hearts and Minds Campaign goal? It’s true, and we could not have done it without you. Your commitment to our staff campaign helped to demonstrate to our community that Team RVH believes that bringing more services closer to home is important and is going to make a difference in so many people’s lives.

When we set out on this journey together in 2014, we knew what we wanted someday to look like.

Someday meant that we would enhance women’s cancer services by funding gynecologic surgical equipment and expanding services at our health centre. Now, thanks to your support and the support of our community, more women are receiving care right here at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre than ever before.

Someday meant that we would have a comprehensive Advanced Cardiac program that would deliver the gold standard of cardiac care to more residents of Simcoe Muskoka; and construction is nearing completion on this vital project.

Someday meant that children experiencing a mental health crisis would no longer have to travel hundreds of kilometers out of region to find inpatient care. Instead, we would have a space right here at RVH that would keep children and families together – offering hope for a better tomorrow; and construction is almost complete on this new unit as well.

In fact, thanks to your gifts and the gifts of our community, someday is nearly here!

I am now asking you to help us reach the finish line. Will you consider making a one-time donation, or launching a payroll deduction for our staff campaign?  Whether your gift is a dollar a day, a dollar a pay, or a dollar any other way – your gift will make a difference.

I hope you will take an opportunity to think about how you can help us reach the finish line.

There is a printable donation form here. Once completed, you can send the form to the RVH Foundation through interdepartmental mail, or email it to You can also reach out to Brianna McKenna, Donor Relations Specialist for more information, or to discuss other giving options like an automatic monthly donation. She can be reached at extension 41516 or by email at 

As a team, we will make each life better. Together…
