Introducing a New Vaughan Telephone Number

to Reach Mackenzie Health

 

RICHMOND HILL/VAUGHAN, ON – To make contacting Mackenzie Health easier for patients and families, the organization has introduced a new additional telephone number for residents across Vaughan to call their local hospital. Mackenzie Health knows that staying in contact with family and loved ones while in hospital can positively influence healing. 

 

Effective immediately, callers can dial 905-832-4554, from across Southwest York Region to reach Mackenzie Health. This number is local across Vaughan, where for some, the existing number, 905-883-1212, is long distance.

 

This new number does not replace the existing number (905-883-1212) and connects seamlessly to Mackenzie Health’s switchboard. 

 

Mackenzie Health operates a number of services in Vaughan including an Urgent Care Centre (UCC), Chronic Kidney Disease Program (dialysis services) and Adult Day Program at 9401 Jane St., as well as Domestic Abuse Care and Resource Centre (DASA) and Diabetes Education Program and Chronic Disease Wellness Centre located at 955 Major Mackenzie Dr. west. The organization looks forward to beginning construction on the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital in the fall of 2016.

 

Quotes:

“This new convenient number for residents in Southwest York Region further demonstrates our commitment to providing services and care for residents across our entire community as we move closer to opening the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital.”

Altaf Stationwala, President and CEO, Mackenzie Health
