Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) was built on decades of philanthropy – starting with the generosity of Mr. Arthur Latcham who, in 1967, donated the land upon which our original hospital would be built in 1990. Over the years, thanks to incredible generosity from our community, MSH has funded capital expenditures for equipment, IT infrastructure and a major expansion and renovation project.

Today, what was once a cornfield is now one of Ontario’s leading community hospitals serving Canada’s most diverse population in one of its fastest growing regions. With 329 beds, redeveloped facilities, excellent clinical programs and leading health technology, MSH proudly provides care that uniquely combines the scope of a large metropolitan hospital with the warm and friendly touch that only a community hospital can offer.

With a bold new vision, MSH is responding to the ever-changing landscape of community health care and its rapidly growing, aging and diverse population and remains committed to putting the patient first by providing care that is better connected to the community.

Government can’t fund all the hospital’s ongoing equipment and other priority needs. Year after year, it’s generous community support that continues to drive innovation and growth, and enable exceptional patient care.

It’s your generosity that will help ensure MSH patients have access to the life-saving care and treatment they need, close to home.
