Vitally You – RVH’s New Strategic Plan 2024 – 2034

Vitally You is more than a strategic plan – it’s a declaration that world-class care belongs right here, at home. It’s a promise to make the big moves needed to end hallway medicine, long waits and long drives for care somewhere else.

Vitally You sets our course for a future where compassionate, advanced care is a given and expected – not just a goal.

Our Purpose:

Making life better, with the care you need, close to home.

Our purpose is unchanging. It is our why; our reason for being. It is the promise that we make to those who count on us. It is what each of us is determined to do, every day, when we get out of bed.

Our Values:

These are the principles that help us make decisions and guide our actions in all that we do as we live our purpose.

Team Up

We thrive on the power of team — patients, Team RVH, families, and partners together — raising each other up, having each other’s backs, listening to understand and support, and valuing each of our unique experiences.

Be Kind

We foster a culture of kindness and empathy, treating everyone with respect, compassion, and fairness. Kindness is how we build trust, nurture relationships, and create a positive, inclusive, and supportive environment for all.

Do Great Things

We drive innovation to support excellence and high-quality care while offering an ideal experience for patients, partners and Team RVH.

Inspire Trust

We earn trust through authentic, kind, respectful, and transparent actions and decisions. With strong relationships built on integrity, we foster an environment where collaboration thrives in service to our communities.

Be Bold

We never avoid the tough decisions or hard conversations. We take prudent risks, challenge the conventional, and speak up — taking action when it’s the right thing to do.
