Accelerating Access

An interim solution to help
address hallway medicine

The Reactivation Care Centre (RCC) – our sixth community-based location – is a newly renovated facility designed to help patients transition from an acute-care setting to an alternative level of care.

A collaboration between Mackenzie Health, Humber River Hospital, North York General Hospital, Southlake Regional Health Centre and Markham Stouffville Hospital, the RCC opened just 18 months ago and is changing the way we serve our community in two fundamental ways. First, it’s providing a unique, specialized recovery setting for hospital patients who are well enough to transition out of acute care but may not be ready to go home. And second, it’s improving hospital access at a time when demand is on the rise.

Looking ahead, the RCC will play a critical role in helping us bridge the short-term gap for acute care beds as we work towards the completion of the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital, the first new hospital in York Region in 30 years.
