At the heart of Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital lies the Vaughan in Motion for Cancer Care Medical Surgical Inpatient Unit which helps patients recover faster and get home sooner. Located on Level 6 East, the unit houses 36 medical and surgical inpatient beds and features bright and spacious private and semi-private rooms; smart monitoring and treatment technologies and a rehabilitation therapy gym to build strength and independence and prepre patients for discharge.

Mackenzie Health is proud to become one of the first Canadian hospitals with a customized smart bedside tablet across both of its hospital sites. Planned and designed through the eyes of the patient, the integration of new, smart technology will empower patients to participate more fully in their health care journey and help keep patients safe and connected with loved ones.

The Inpatient room design, combined with exemplary, compassionate care, will allow patients to recover in the best healing environment possible.

Thanks to the generosity of Vaughan in Motion, Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital care teams provide comprehensive support for those who are recovering from surgery, receiving care for acute conditions, or treatment for a progressive and chronic disease, including cancer.
