When the pandemic was declared in March 2020, we never imagined its severity, its length, or its impacts.  And yet, as we reflect on this past year, we are struck by the incredible courage, compassion and commitment of TEAM RVH.  This has been a gruelling, scary year during which we have all faced many challenges.  Yet, TEAM RVH’s courage never wavered nor did its commitment to serving the people of this region. Safety is always RVH’s priority and during the pandemic we introduced countless new processes, protocols and practices to ensure the safety of our team, our patients and our community.
