Last week, on October 2nd 2019, the City of Vaughan announced a new partnership with ventureLAB, York University, and Mackenzie Health, in order to formulate a feasibility study for the plans of a brand new Vaughan Healthcare Centre Precinct. The news comes in light of the City of Vaughan working towards the opening of the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital in late 2020.

The study being funded by the City of Vaughan will look into creating a state-of-the-art innovation lab from ventureLAB on the property. The complex will be connected to the upcoming new hospital, and will serve as a new hub for research, student learning for York University, and innovative health companies.

All organizations involved came together in order to sign a memorandum of understanding at Vaughan City Hall last week Wednesday. Mayor of Vaughan, Maurizio Bevilacqua said to the media,

“The new state-of-the-art Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will be a catalyst for other uses, like medical offices, labs and research space, healthcare incubators, and education and conference rooms related to healthcare. This is where thought leaders, subject matter experts, and innovators will come together to advance a shared vision of healthcare innovation. This transformational collaboration will benefit the healthcare of residents of Vaughan and beyond.”
