Our Campaign

Mackenzie Health Foundation is spearheading the $250-million Exceptional Care Belongs Here campaign – the largest fundraising drive led by a community hospital in Canada.

With your generous support, we will help build and equip Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital, Canada’s first smart hospital, and enhance care at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital.

Together, we are exceptional.


We have an unrivalled opportunity to achieve a vision for a world-class health experience close to home with an innovative two-hospital model that includes the future Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital, Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital and a network of community sites. Only with your support can we help build our state-of-the-art hospital and purchase the leading-edge equipment and technology that will inspire best-in-class physicians and health care teams at both hospitals.

Life-Saving Technology

“I was hit in the ear by a golf ball that knocked me out. I was rushed by ambulance to Mackenzie Health’s Emergency where a hematoma was removed from my ear. An emergency CT scan ruled out a skull fracture and confirmed that I needed another procedure to remove further clots. Without the CT scan, I would not be where I am today. I have returned to the golf course and I am fully recovered, but I will never forget the patience, compassion and skill of the CT technologists who cared for me at Mackenzie Health.”

Ron Draycott, grateful patient and golf professional
