Tatham Engineering Limited continues to support the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) Foundation’s Keep Life Wild campaign with another donation of $60,000 bringing their total support to more than $100,000.
The Barrie hospital’s fundraising campaign hasa $100 million goal.
“The support the Keep Life Wild campaign has received from the community demonstrates that our community both understands and stands behind our vision to increase access to the life saving, specialized care that only RVH provides,” said Gail Hunt, RVH president and CEO. “With the continued support of community leaders like Tatham, we are one step closer to making our future vision a reality.”
RVH’s expansion plans include building a health-care system that offers advanced, state-of-the-art diagnostics and personalized treatment, delivered by highly trained specialists right here in our own community.
“RVH is an amazing regional health-care facility that provides quality service to Simcoe County and surrounding area residents, including many of our staff,” Nick Millington, Tatham Engineering’s Barrie office manager said after a recent tour of the health centre. “We appreciated the opportunity to tour the imaging department, meet many of the exceptional RVH staff and to see the impressive equipment they use, thanks in no small part to donations from individuals and organizations like Tatham.
“The impact of community support in helping to power world-class health care close to home was clearly evident.”
The expansion plan includes doubling the size of the current site and the construction of a new health centre in Innisfil.
“Tatham is happy to continue supporting the community through our ongoing donations to RVH, helping RVH grow as our population also grows,” shares Millington.
“We are so fortunate to have the unwavering support of the community behind us,” shares Mary-Anne Frith, Keep Life Wild campaign chair. “When we launched the campaign with our ambitious $100-million goal, we knew that the members of our community would be our biggest and most effective advocates. We are so grateful for Tatham Engineering for being one of those advocates. Their generosity and support since the very beginning has been integral to moving the project forward to the next phases of planning. Tatham Engineering and other organizations like them are helping us to get one step closer to ensuring the world-class health care only RVH can provide is accessible close to home for everyone who lives in Simcoe-Muskoka.”
