On October 25, 2016, Mackenzie Health marked the largest milestone to date for Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital with the beginning of construction.
Joined by Minister of Transportation and MPP for Vaughan Steven Del Duca, John Fraser, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, and Vaughan Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua to help mark the occasion, we broke ground and now look forward to completion of the new additional hospital by 2020.
Upon completion, Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will provide modern surgical services and operating rooms, advanced diagnostic imaging and other specialized services. The hospital will have 342 beds on opening day and the majority of patient rooms will be private.
The announcement marks the realization of our vision to create a two-hospital model of care for our community – one that will provide much needed access to expanded services and programs for our growing community, closer to home.
Together, we are transforming the way patients experience healthcare in our community.
Groundbreaking follows the August 2016 announcement of Plenary Health as the preferred proponent to design, build, finance and maintain the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital project. Following this milestone, Infrastructure Ontario and Mackenzie Health awarded Plenary Health with a fixed-price contract valued at approximately $1.3 billion.
