Radio for Cardiology

 Through the Radio for Cardiology campaign, Bell Media Radio’s KICX 106 and 104.1 The DOCK have pledged to raise $1 million to help support advanced heart care at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre in Barrie.

The gold standard of cardiac care means receiving treatment in a cardiac catheterization lab within 90 minutes of having a heart attack. Prior to the Simcoe Muskoka Regional Heart Program opening in January 2018, this was the only region in the province without advanced cardiac services. Supporting the heart program ensures RVH is able to offer advanced cardiac diagnostics and interventions such as coronary angiogram and angioplasty, giving patients access to faster treatment, a shorter hospital stay, and reduced travel time.
