Mackenzie Health marked the largest milestone to date for the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital project with the beginning of construction in October 2016. Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will be the first new hospital to be built in Ontario’s York Region in the last 30 years. As part of Mackenzie Health’s two-site hospital model, Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital and Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital will provide increased access to state-of-the-art healthcare for its growing communities, closer to home.
Upon completion in 2020, Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will provide a state-of-the-art emergency department, modern surgical services, advanced diagnostic imaging, ambulatory clinics and intensive care beds. Other specialized services will include Medicine, Birthing (Obstetrics), Pediatrics, Mental Health and the York Region District Stroke Centre. The new hospital will have approximately 350 beds on opening day – with capacity to expand to 550 – and the majority of patient rooms will be private, a best practice in infection prevention and control.
