Welcome to Royal Victoria
Regional Health Centre


Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH), located in Barrie, Ontario, provides safe, high-quality care for residents across a large geographical region including Simcoe County and the District of Muskoka. The area is home to more than 450,000 residents, with 40 per cent of RVH’s patients living outside the City of Barrie.
As the largest health centre in Simcoe Muskoka, RVH provides highly specialized services, procedures and technology not found anywhere else in the region. This includes the only Interventional Radiology suites for minimally invasive surgeries, a fully-automated laboratory, cardiac care (intensive) unit, as well as dedicated trauma rooms in its large Emergency department.​
RVH is also home to the Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre, meaning distance is no longer a factor for residents receiving lifesaving cancer treatment.​

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.​​​​
