Welcome to Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre
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 region is home to more than 450,000 residents and in fact, 40 per cent of RVH’s patients live outside the City of Barrie. As the largest health centre in Simcoe Muskoka, RVH provides a variety of services including the region’s only Interventional Radiology suites for minimally invasive surgeries; RIVA – a robotic arm for the preparation o
f chemotherapy treatments – one of the first of its kind in Canada; the latest and most advanced MRI technology – to name just a few.
After an expansion in 2012, RVH doubled in size, added $70 million in state-of-the-art technology, developed specialty services not found anywhere else in our region and welcomed 600 new, highly-skilled staff. The $450-million expansion means distance is no longer a factor in residents receiving lifesaving cancer treatment, thanks to the opening of RVH’s Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre.
RVH is currently developing highly-specialized gynecology cancer services to women from throughout Central and Northern Ontario. The health centre is also working with the provincial government to develop an advanced cardiac program, which will provide heart diagnostics and interventions, such as coronary angioplasty, to thousands of residents who otherwise have to travel outside our region for care.
We also know young people in our region who face mental health issues are struggling. With no inpatient services for kids anywhere in North Simcoe Muskoka, families have nowhere to turn. It’s a tremendous burden that RVH wants to alleviate by developing a child and youth inpatient unit.

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.
