In August of 2021, the RVH Foundation unveiled a new addition to our RVH Healing Gardens; THE RVH LEGACY CIRCLE. This beautiful circular stone garden bed is located across from the Healing Garden water feature and is dedicated to community members who are members of our RVH LEGACY GUILD having made a gift in will to the Foundation.

The official launch of the RVH Legacy Circle Garden; Julia Boudreau, President and CEO of RVH, Melanie Clemmer, Development Coordinator RVH Foundation, Patti Dillabough, Executive Director RVH Foundation, Patrick Farrell, Farrell’s Landscaping (who built the Legacy Circle), John & Lorrayne Milliken, Milliken Garden Centre (who donated and planted the gorgeous flowers featured in the garden) and Lorna Finner, RVH Foundation Board of Directors.

The LEGACY CIRCLE features plaques that commemorate all of the members of the RVH LEGACY GUILD and will continue to be adorned with these important donors as the years go forward.


In conjunction with the launch of the Legacy Circle Garden, the RVH Foundation has introduced our new LEGACY PROGRAM. This program is designed to assist folks who are considering a Gift in Will to the hospital. These Legacy program packages can be picked up at the RVH Foundation office.
