Statement on the Opening of the Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital
Ahead of the Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital opening its doors as a full-service hospital tomorrow, June 6th, 2021, please see below statement from Stephen Lecce, MPP for King-Vaughan.
“This is a game changer — state of the art healthcare right in the heart of our community. Our government committed to opening this hospital, and in partnership with our community, we are getting the job done for Vaughan and King residents and families across the GTA. This is the largest provincial investment in our community that will directly improve our quality of life — from mental health, to child and birthing, emergency care, and a stroke unit — that will save lives and help new ones enter the world.
Together, because of the compassion and vision of our community, volunteers, donors, and frontline healthcare heroes, we have began a new chapter in our city, and are leaving a legacy for our province.”
As Ontario’s first net new hospital in over 30 years, Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital was built to help solve hospital capacity challenges in the Greater Toronto Area and end hallway health care.
The Ontario government is the largest investor, providing $1.3 billion towards the $1.7 billion Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital project.
As part of Mackenzie Health, Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital will feature fully integrated smart technology systems and medical devices that have the capability to interact directly with one another to provide real-time information and anticipate the patient’s and the hospital’s needs to enhance the patient experience.
