Regional Pandemic Response Unit (PRU)
In preparation for a potential second wave of COVID-19 cases, and ensure patients from across the region continue to have access to safe, high quality care, construction is underway on a Regional Pandemic Response Unit (RPRU) at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH).
The approximately 70-bed, 8,000 square-foot modular structure is located in the volunteer/visitor parking lot outside RVH's lower Simcoe entrance. An enclosed walkway will provide quick and protected access to the health centre.
This temporary unit is a fully-functional, four-season field hospital, professionally staffed and equipped to deliver safe, quality care and will be a regional asset if required.
