New Vaughan hospital may have saved Ontario healthcare from collapse amid COVID: city staff – GLOBAL

May 10, 2022

A new report completed by staff at the City of Vaughan says the opening of a full-service hospital in the city last year saved the provincial healthcare system from the “risk of collapse” during Ontario’s third COVID-19 wave.

On Feb. 7, 2021, Mackenzie Health opened the Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital early exclusively to deal with COVID-19 patients, according to a report Vaughan councillors will consider Tuesday.

Between February and June the hospital only served as a COVID-19 care facility, taking patient transfers from across the GTA. During that time, the hospital treated more than 500 coronavirus patients from other hospitals, the report said.

“Without the relief provided by CVH by opening solely to provide COVID-19 care, Ontario’s health care system would have been at risk of collapse,” City of Vaughan staff wrote.
