RVH Foundation

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) has been providing safe, high-quality care to residents of the Simcoe Muskoka region since 1897. As the regional provider of health care for more than 450,000 residents, RVH has continuously met the growing needs of the region by anticipating and strategically planning for the future.

The RVH Foundation was established in 1982 to provide funding to support Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH).


Equipment and technology is not funded by the government.  It is through the generosity of the community that RVH can purchase the best equipment to deliver safe, high-quality care. The RVH Foundation works to match the needs of our patients with the generosity of donors. We strive to ensure that funding is available to purchase advanced medical equipment and technology.


We work hard every day – without exception, to ensure that we are supporting the vision of Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre – to Make each life better. Together.
Having completed the highly successful $35 million ‘I Believe’ campaign to support RVH’s expansion, which included the opening of the Simcoe/Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre, the RVH Foundation is now excited to be working towards the delivery of the next set of clinical priorities through its follow-up campaign – Hearts and Minds.   This campaign will support clinical priorities areas including advanced cardiac care, child and youth mental health, women’s cancer, research and education.
