History

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.

In 2010, MSH became an affiliated and community teaching hospital linked with the University of Toronto's Faculty of Medicine.

The original complex was built by Zeidler Partnership Architects and the current expansion by Bregman+Hamann and Perkins+Will.

It is only hospital helipad in the Greater Toronto Area not located directly to the hosptial structure.
