A Message From Our CEO

When the sun is sparse in these winter months, we still feel the warmth of our donor community shining throughout our region.

Our local service clubs have been extraordinary supporters of RVH and regional healthcare, helping to bring more specialized, world-class care to Simcoe Muskoka through their generosity.

The Rotary Club of Innisfil made a recent $20,000 gift to support building a new healthcare facility in their community, to bring care closer to home for more of their neighbours, loved ones, and friends. In Muskoka, the Bracebridge Rotary Club has donated $10,000 to support the David and Catherine Hudson Regional Cancer Centre at RVH, over and above their very generous commitment to their local hospital.

We are so grateful to both organizations for recognizing the regional impact of their giving. By supporting RVH and helping to advance healthcare locally in their communities, they are making healthcare more accessible for all of us and that is what allows us to live our lives to the fullest.

You don’t need to be a member of a service club to show your support for RVH this winter. If you’re looking for ways to keep your winter weekends wild, we have a few unique ways for you to “Seize the Season” in support of RVH. Combat the winter blahs and scroll down to check out some of the family-friendly activities happening over the next few weeks that will help you find your wild side and support exceptional healthcare in our region.

Stay healthy. Stay wild.
