Markham Stouffville Hospital – Serving our Community
Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) is a progressive community hospital with leading diagnostic services and clinical programs serving Markham and Stouffville. MSH recently added over 385,000 square feet to the facility, allowing the hospital to continue to meet the needs of its growing communities.
Our 450 physicians, 1,945 staff and over 700 volunteers are here to provide exemplary patient care for all ages and stages of life in our Maternal Child, Mental Health, Oncology, Palliative Care, and Intensive Care Departments. MSH performs close to 20,000 surgical procedures in a year with most surgical patients returning home the same day. We treat over 280,000 patients annually through both inpatient programs and outpatient clinics all of which are focused on the needs of our rapidly growing communities.
A number of programs and services are growing including the Maternal Child program. Patients can have their baby delivered by an obstetrician or midwife in one of our new spacious delivery rooms. MSH continuously develops partnerships to enhance programs. The Cornell Community Centre, which is connected to the hospital, is just one of our partners. Together we have developed innovative programs in the areas of mental health, cerebral vascular disease, COPD, and adult diabetes.
Innovation is a priority and imperative for future success. To promote an innovative culture at MSH, we created a virtual ‘Office of Innovation,’ led by an Executive Vice President and a Medical Chief of Innovation.
