Royal Victoria Hospital - Regional Health Centre and Hearts and Minds Campaign
Over a number of years, the owners and Sales Representatives of Royal LePage First Contact Realty have donated over $250,000 to the ‘I Believe’ campaign for Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre’s (RVH) Phase 1 Expansion.
Thanks to this and other generous support from people throughout this region, the ‘I Believe’ campaign for Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre’s (RVH) Phase 1 Expansion was a huge success, exceeding the $35 million goal!
On May 5, 2015 RVH officially launched Hearts & Minds – a campaign to raise $25 million for five areas of priority for the health centre:
- • Child and youth mental health services - $3 million
- • Advanced cardiac care - $15 million
- • Women's cancer services - $3 million
- • Equipment - $5 million
- • Teaching and research - $1 million
Many of our generous Sales Representatives continue to donate a portion of every commission cheque to the RVH Hearts and Minds campaign as do the Owners of Royal LePage First Contact Realty.
The owners of the Brokerage also regularly support the Royal Victoria Hospital through the Hockey Night in Barrie Event.
