Regional Pandemic Response Unit (PRU)



The PRU is a 70-bed field hospital located adjacent to RVH.  It is a regional asset, caring for patients from Collingwood General and Marine Hospital, Georgian Bay General Hospital, Muskoka Algonquin Health Care, Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital, and Stevenson Memorial Hospital.

This fully-functioning field hospital was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and will help to alleviate capacity challenges at hospitals around the region.  Patients in the PRU receive the same level of quality care that they would in any other hospital.  Our aim is to care for patients from around the region while keeping hospitals at safe occupancy levels.

Our healthcare team consists of physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, registered practical nurses, patient care assistants, physiotherapists, recreation therapist, and unit clerks.
Each member has a specific role to play to ensure seamless integration of care and together, we strive to provide exceptional care to each patient and family.
