Mackenzie Health Moving Forward to Better Serve Our Community
“Shovels for the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will be in the ground later this year,” says Mackenzie Health President and CEO Altaf Stationwala. “We look forward to offering care to our community through a two-hospital model of care that will see a full-service community hospital here at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital and at the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital.”
Both Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital and the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will have an Emergency Department, Critical Care Services, Medical and Surgical inpatient care, Laboratory, Medical Imaging and Pharmacy Services. In addition, each hospital will have specialized programs with Seniors Wellness, Chronic Kidney Disease, Complex Care, Rehabilitation and Ambulatory Care offered at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital and Stroke, Pediatrics, Birthing and Mental Health at Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital.
As part of Mackenzie Health’s ongoing commitment in the vision of a “Smart Hospital”, last fall it also launched ICAT Healthcare – a strategy that will propel its technology systems to a leadership position in the healthcare industry and help to create a world-class health experience with:
- enhanced bed-side care as clinicians use technology to better interact with patients;
- integrated care that is customized to individual patient needs; and
- enhanced communications for patients with special needs such as built-in language translation services and touch screen technology for patients with limited mobility.
