Renfrew Victoria Hospital (RVH) is located in the heart of the Ottawa Valley, in the Town of Renfrew. The catchment population is 22,725, although the catchment population for our regional programs is 100,000.
Renfrew is located less than 100 km west of Ottawa, along the Highway 17 corridor. The town enjoys easy access to Montreal, Toronto and Algonquin Park. Whitewater rafting, golfing, skiing, snowmobiling, and boating are some of the inviting seasonal activities.
RVH is fully accredited, offering surgical, medical, obstetrical and chronic inpatient services. We are the regional provider of nephrology services, offering hemodialysis programs in three centres as well as pre-dialysis and peritoneal dialysis programs. RVH is a satellite of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre providing chemotherapy across Renfrew County.
Our emergency/ambulatory department manages over 30,000 E.R. visits per year, as well as visits from 26 specialists. RVH sponsors county-wide services in Alcohol, Drug and Gambling Assessment Referral Service, Sexual Assault/Partner Abuse Care Centre, and Sleep Lab.
Our physicians enjoy full diagnostic support including radiological, ultrasound, bone density and mammography services that operate within a PACS environment.
Our staff surgeon operates a comprehensive surgical program and our Internist provides exercise stress testing, echocardiography, cardiopulmonary and allergy testing.
Construction will begin soon on a $2 million complex to house nine doctors’ offices on the RVH campus. New physicians will have access to a state-of-the art practice setting, with an electronic infrastructure needed to meet the needs of today’s health care world.
