Markham Stouffville Hospital is an acute care (215 beds) and community hospital serving south-east York Region. The hospital is located on Ninth Line north of Highway 7 in east-end Markham, Ontario, immediately south of the town of Whitchurch–Stouffville. It is also referred to as a base hospital, as a resource centre for paramedics region-wide.
Opened in 1990, it was created to relieve stress on York Central Hospital in Richmond Hill and hospitals in north part of Toronto. MSH is the only hospital in Markham and one of two in south York Region. It was one of a few Greater Toronto Area hospitals dealing with severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) patients.
In 2004 Uxbridge Cottage Hospital became a partner site with MSH.
The original complex was built by Zeidler Partnership Architects and the current expansion by Bregman+Hamann and Perkins+Will.
MSH is a popular hospital for ambulance re-directs from east-end Toronto hospitals with bed shortages.

A heliport is located at the east end of the hospital to facilitate medical airlifts to and from the hospital. The pad's designation is (TC LID: CPH7). Transfer of patients requires a journey of approximately 150 ft (46 m) from the pad to the near entrance at the rear. It is only hospital helipad in the Greater Toronto Area not located directly to the hosptial structure. Upon completion of the rebuilding of the hospital in 2014, the helipad will move to the roof of the new emergency wing and allow the transfer of patients directly into the hospital building.
