RVH introduces new Strategic Plan – MY CARE 2013-2020

On June 17 Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre launched its dynamic new Strategic Plan. Shaped by the voices of over 3,000 people who care about the future of healthcare in our region, this plan will act as a roadmap to guide RVH over the next five to seven years.

Led by a relentless commitment to safety and quality, with an eye to advancing innovation, learning and research, RVH will accelerate to the next level of excellence - raising the bar to bring exceptional care close to home for residents throughout Simcoe Muskoka

It is a plan rooted in a philosophy we call “MY CARE”. RVH has put a stake in the ground and said every patient has a right to expect the best possible experience in our health centre. Always. Every day. And without exception. And that laser-like focus on our patients and their families will ensure we not only meet their needs, but exceed their expectations. They will be partners in their care and involved in planning and decision-making every step of their healthcare journey.

Our vision is bold, our focus is clear and our plan is achievable.

RVH Accountability

It is in that spirit of openness that RVH fully shares many elements of its performance, including wait times, safety indicators, our Quality Improvement Plan and procurement and expense policies. RVH believes this transparency will enhance safe, quality care, improve the patient and family experience and strengthen the public’s confidence in our hospital.
