Together in a crisis: How MSH frontline staff and donors are working together to fight COVID-19
In the hallways of Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH), now empty of visitors, it takes masked frontline staff a moment to recognize each other. They exchange a quick smile or a few light-hearted words before hurrying on their way. In the difficult days of COVID-19, while most of us are sheltering at home, our amazing health care professionals have a job to do – caring for patients suffering with COVID-19 and providing all patients with expert, compassionate care.
Faces of our 30th
Passionate people have helped create a community called Markham Stouffville Hospital. Now, as we mark our 30th anniversary, get to know some of the great people behind the faces as they tell their own stories.
Care Close to Home
After spending eight months in hospital, Brenda Okapiec was ready to go home. She had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and after her first chemotherapy treatment, acquired a blood infection that landed her in the ICU.
Generations of Generosity
Family of donors makes sure the community can count on MSH today— and for generations to come.
When Salmaan Alvi brought his three young children to MSH last year, it fortunately wasn’t for a medical emergency. The children were there to hand out teddy bears to patients as part of MSH’s Bear Necessities program, to spread a bit of comfort while raising funds for the hospital.
