A new hospital for one of Canada's fastest growing cities

Vaughan is one of Canada’s fastest growing cities. The city’s quick growth has outpaced the government’s ability to develop community services, including access to convenient access to high quality healthcare. The new $1.3 billion Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital, now under construction on a 36-acre greenfield campus, is about to change all that.

The 11-story, 1,200,000-square-foot hospital will consist of inpatient medical-surgical units positioned on top of a diagnostic and treatment podium. Key clinical programs will include emergency services, diagnostic imaging, surgical services, critical care unit, neonatal intensive care unit, mental health inpatient services, and more. There will be 353 beds with capacity to expand to approximately 500 beds in total. From the macro to micro scale, the hospital is designed to optimize patient, family, and staff experience—delivering efficient and high quality treatment, comprised in a flexible building organization and a technology infrastructure to leverage medical service delivery advancements. The hospital will be the first “smart” hospital in Canada with integrated technology allowing medical devices to ‘speak’ to one another, facilitating a more streamlined, patient-focused delivery of healthcare services.

The design for the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital is founded on connecting people with natural landscapes while utilizing intelligent technology to deliver world class care. Mackenzie Health’s mission of continuous learning and proactive healthy living is underscored with a visible, public-facing Learning Centre incorporating simulation suites and classrooms for both staff professional development and community health awareness.

Incorporating several sustainable measures including low overall energy use, water conservation and green roofs and construction waste diversion—the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will seek LEED-Silver certification and is scheduled for substantial completion in 2020.
