On Wednesday June 1, the Hon. Maurizio Bevilacqua, Mayor of Vaughan and Chair of the Mackenzie Health Foundation Ultimate campaign, announced the incredible commitment made by HBNG Holborn Group to donate $30 million in support of Mackenzie Health.
Mackenzie Health has achieved its $250-million Ultimate campaign milestone, historically the largest fundraising campaign ever undertaken by a community hospital in Canada. Years of community generosity from more than 15,000 donors was topped off by a $30-million gift from HBNG. Led by partners John A. D’Angelo, Giuseppe Maio, and Claudio Memme, HBNG has been a long-time supporter of Mackenzie Health in addition to other philanthropic contributions.
The campaign’s focus has been to build and equip Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital and enhance care at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital. Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital – a 1.2 million sq. ft., state-of-the-art health care facility – opened in 2021. The new hospital works in tandem with Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital to double access to exceptional care for the western York Region community and surrounding areas.
Mackenzie Health is a vital health care provider in our community and on behalf of HBNG and our families, we are honoured to contribute to this great achievement.
