Mackenzie Health Foundation is spearheading the $250-million Exceptional Care Belongs Here campaign – the largest fundraising drive led by a community hospital in Canada – to help build and equip Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital, Canada’s first smart hospital, as well as to enhance care at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital.
The multi-year campaign is being led by Campaign Cabinet Chair Greg Sorbara and a team of passionate and dedicated volunteers who reflect the community’s enterprises and cultural diversity.
“We will meet our goal,” he says with deep conviction. “There is a level of generosity and commitment to public good that is as strong here as anywhere else in the country.”
Playing a significant role in helping to build a world-class hospital presents a powerful opportunity to leave a lasting legacy in your own community, he says.
Ultimately, the success of the campaign will depend on the support of the entire community, Mr. Sorbara says.
“This is a collective, common enterprise — every one of us needs to participate. When you get right down to it, it’s fulfilling a responsibility to help build this community – that is true citizenship.”
It will be well worth making this journey, he says, knowing our community will have a state-of-the-art hospital, with the best care and equipment, to call its own.
Since 1977, Mackenzie Health Foundation has raised more than $111 million for capital projects, medical equipment, technology and educational opportunities in support of Mackenzie Health’s vision to create a world-class health experience in York Region.
