A Message from Foundation Board Chair
I am honoured and thrilled to be Chair of the RVH Foundation. As a board member for six years, I’ve been tremendously impressed with the generosity of our community – from financial support to time and expertise.
We will need this strong bedrock of support more than ever at a time when we face our biggest health care challenge: keeping up with the explosive growth projected for Simcoe Muskoka.
Even though RVH has grown considerably over the past few years, we are already nearing, or are above, capacity.
RVH has a remarkable plan to build a world-class healthcare system across the region – but we can’t do it without you. The province funds operating costs, but it asks RVH to pay a portion of the costs to expand our facilities and most of the costs for new equipment.
Our region has always been generous in helping to fund the needs of local healthcare – and the coming years will require no less, asking us to dig even deeper to ensure that you, your children, and grandchildren can continue to count on outstanding healthcare.
I thank you in advance for your support.
